Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

We hope to raise the quality and number of arts opportunities available to our community members.We will evaluate the project by collecting data from participants and by offering them the chance to participate in future projects.

Measurable Outcome(s)

By utilizing C4's growing fan base and reputation as an arts leader in Rochester, we were able to draw an audience of over 400, involve at least 20 southeast MN visual artists, and draw more youth via daytime programming. We were not, however, able to attract underserved groups with our free ticket offer.
