Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Funding will impact Park Rapids Lakes Area Arts Council in two key ways: 1) Enable Park Rapids Lakes Area Arts Council to develop and implement a marketing plan which at a minimum would drive more traffic to the Park Rapids Lakes Area Arts Council website, raise awareness and gain support for Park Rapids Lakes Area Arts Council events and activities, and allow flexibility in partnering with other organizations to provide arts events, and 2) Encourage incubation of new ideas with some degree of optimism they will not be discouraged for lack of initial funding. Arts activities, those Park Rapids Lakes Area Arts Council sponsors and/or those resulting from community partnerships, would be measured in future Cultural Data Project (now DataArts) reports, particularly in the areas of number of arts activities and increased audience numbers and also in the number of artists engaged. Google Analytics would be used to measure success in generating more traffic to Park Rapids Lakes Area Arts Council's website and data would be kept on increased use of Facebook.
