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. 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 Parent Board will gather and evaluate the outcomes of activities as they relate to their goals. An audience and participant survey will be conducted. They will utilize a number of methods to measure the outcome of activities on the success or failure of our goals.
