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.

Measurable Outcome(s)

With funding from Arts Tour Minnesota, the Flying Foot Forum was able to take its unique fusion of percussive dance and music to youth and adults in Fergus Falls and Bemidji. The pieces we performed gave audience and exposure to the Flying Foot Forum and all the exceptional Minnesota artists involved. We kept accurate records of the sites visited and the performances and workshops we conducted. 2: Fergus Falls and Bemidji were both sites new to the Flying Foot Forum, and we successfully toured to both, fully achieving the outcome. We maintained records of our tours to both sites, keeping track of where we went, the performances and workshops we conducted, and the audiences reached.
