Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The variety and number of arts opportunities in Northwest Minnesota will increase through bringing an award winning history writer to the northern part of the state to discuss the times of World War II. Evaluation will occur through an audience questionnaire, personal observation of activities, and attendance numbers.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Attendance was triple that of our last program event. The program brought several new audiences to our area from as far as 130 miles away.
