Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The number of Minnesotans who are able to participate in the arts increases through including a wider range of ages and setting a goal to increase from 41 to 50 participants. Evaluation will occur through a participant questionnaire; notes related to personal observation; and audience, artist, and youth counts.

Measurable Outcome(s)

This year with Summer Arts Safari we were able to offer it to younger ages. Last year we had 44 participants and this year we had 50. We increased our numbers which was a positive. We were down in our numbers for grades 5-9 but by allowing younger ages to participate we were able to increase our overall numbers. Through observation and by income from the gate I noticed we increased our numbers for the night of the performance from last year.
