Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The number of Minnesotans who are able to participate in the arts will increase through more people attending and participating in the Polish festival each year. Evaluation will occur through an audience and artist questionnaire, and attendance numbers.

Measurable Outcome(s)

We posted survey boards that we announced throughout the event for both audience and artists to make check marks in. The surveys included questions that we believe would give us the best feedback for continuing to hold our Polish Day event each year. These questions were: "Did you travel more or less than 100 miles to attend this event?", "Do you feel you gained a deeper understanding of the Polish culture through this event?", "Would you consider attending this event in the future and recommend to others?"
