Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Minnesota professional artists and arts organizations have more opportunities to tour their work throughout the state. Minnesota professional artists and arts organizations tour to communities and regions they haven’t previously visited. More community and nonprofit organizations become involved in presenting touring artists and arts organizations.

Measurable Outcome(s)

We toured to many regions of the state we had not previously visited. These have led to invitations for repeat engagements, and add credibility to our performances for other future venues. Evaluation was done by surveys and by letters from presenters. 2: Communities new to us included the cities of Red Wing and Morris, and the six counties served by the Kitchigami Regional Library System.
