Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

With help from this Five Wings Arts Council grant Barter Fest expects to achieve: 1. Increase the size of the audience by 30%. 2. Expand the a variety of artistic mediums by at least 3 new musical genres or other art forms, to be showcased for the public in Hewitt, Minnesota on Saturday, September 20th. 3. Improve our service to the audience by being capable of providing protection for attendees in the event of inclement weather.This year a small group of people will be trained to monitor attendance and distribute a festival schedule/ evaluation form. These people will encourage completion of the evaluation form and collect them. These surveys will document the public's experience, provide information about the reach of our promotion, and collect demographic data about the attendees. In addition, the Abandoned Scout Camp will have a booth at the event where people can receive information and leave their evaluations.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Successful public music concert and festival. Majority of participants inicated a positive artistic experience and increased sense of community. Audience participation increased by approximately 10% from previous event.
