Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The quality and number of arts opportunities in Northwest Minnesota will increase through adding one more community with a summer children's theater experience by Safari. Evaluation will occur through personal observation of activities, a follow up meeting with project planners, and interviews.

Measurable Outcome(s)

In our questionnaire, we asked communities about their experience and whether they would have us back again next year. All communities surveyed responded very positively and will have us back again.
