Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

To increase the number of artists interacting with their potential market(s) leading to increased recognition as an artist with increased sales. Red Lake youth will increase knowledge of Ojibwe artistry and culture creating a positive attitude toward their heritage and a sense of pride. Spectators will increase their understanding of Anishinabe people through art to assist with elimination of racial discord.Artists registered for the festival will be compared to the prior year number of registrants. Skill level in display, packaging, pricing and selling with be noted on the artist’s registration form. Artist’s will complete a survey for feedback and document their sales. Youth: students will be surveyed on the changes or impact created from attending the festival. Spectator numbers will be recorded as they register for a door prize. A survey will be conducted before spectators depart with the incentive of entry to win a door prize. Racial discord will be monitored by community input.

Measurable Outcome(s)

We used the artist registration forms to keep track of artist participation and attendance, we counted all the youth that came in the door (1,921) and made note of which schools they came from.
