Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The number of Minnesotans who are able to participate in the arts increases. Real or perceived barriers to arts participation and arts access are identified and addressed. New relationships with members of groups that have traditionally been underserved by the arts or by the applicant organization are built. The number of Minnesotans who are engaged in arts education and learning opportunities increases. They will conduct an audience survey to gain valuable comments and stories, count audience members at each concert, and conduct an online survey of the student musicians about their educational experience in the summer band.
