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)

I was able to tour the state of Minnesota. The answer to this question is self-explanatory, as I submitted the grant application with an intended outcome of touring the state of Minnesota as a Minnesota professional artist and, with the receipt of the grant funding, I was able to do that. 2: Through the Arts Tour Minnesota funding, I, a Minnesota professional artist, was given the opportunity to tour through Minnesota communities and regions that I hadn’t previously visited. Of the seven communities that partnered with me on this grant (and who therefore brought me into their communities upon receipt of the grant), my music was new to all of them. Through the grant funding, I was able to share my music with completely brand new audiences who would not have been able to hear my music otherwise. These communities were grateful for the funding, as was I!
