Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The quality, types and number of arts opportunities in our region, and the organizations or venues that offer them increases. We will create a separate survey document to give to our studio artists, office users and ticketing customers that asks how this equipment upgrade will be helpful to them and the organization as a whole and increase our ability to service the arts community. We will publicize the receipt of the grant in our Newsletter or Program Brochure.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Yes, we achieved our planned outcomes. We used a survey. Survey results indicated that artists and staff that use the internet in the Arts Center are happy with the computer and router and see a difference in service.
