Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The number of Minnesotans who are able to participate in the arts increases. The quality, types and number of arts opportunities in our region, and the organizations or venues that offer them increases. Paper surveys will be inserted in all show programs and an announcement will be made at the beginning of each performance. An optional online survey will be available with the same questions for people who do not want to complete the survey at a show.
