Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

We want to find ways to assist Northfield in becoming a community where arts and cultural activities are recognized as vital components of community life. We want to value and promote the arts for their economic benefit and development potential to the city. The city of Northfield is working on a new strategic plan and the Arts and Culture Commission is working on a new Cultural Strategic Plan. We hope to learn from the speakers and our peers at the sessions - ways to make Northfield an Arts destination. We will know that our training goals are met if we able to come back to Northfield and put together a cultural and Strategic plan for Northfield that will enhance Northfield's identity and quality of life as an arts community. We will know that we met our organization goals if we come away with ideas and strategies to strengthen the arts and cultural opportunities in Northfield.
