Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The number of Minnesotans who participate in the arts festivals and folk and traditional activities increases. The variety and number of festivals and traditional arts activities in our region/state increases. The evaluation method will consist of data collection, interviews, and surveys. Committee members will count the number of performances, the number of artists involved, and the audience members under 30 years of age. They will interview artists and attendees to see what they like about their program and what could be improved. This will tell them immediately if there are things that they need to change or adjust. Surveys for audience members will be available online, at the event, City Hall, and the Gaylord Public Library.

Measurable Outcome(s)

The number of Minnesotans who participated in arts, festivals, and folk and traditional activities increased. The variety and number of festivals and traditional arts activities in our region/state increased.
