Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The variety and number of arts opportunities in Northwest Minnesota will increase through this opportunity for the general public to interact with the artists and attend workshops on their special interests. Evaluation will occur through an audience questionnaire, personal observation of activities, follow up meeting with project planners, attendance numbers, and interviews.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Through estimating the crowd, personal observations and the visitor sign-in sheet, it appeared that we were up by at least 60 people. Gross proceeds were also greater than the previous year due to higher attendance.
