Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The mission of the Gallery is to foster arts education and appreciation, and our strategic plan involves increasing our programming to include a larger variety of programming for adults. This proposal will help us reach those organizational goals by increasing our adult programming. Through our programming we will engage over 500 adults and children in high quality arts experiences, creating a deeper connection between the artist and audience, and building a stronger arts community in Fergus Falls. We will provide a variety of events that appeal to different audiences and will hopefully bring more people into the gallery. We record attendance to every gallery event and will measure initial success by meeting our attendance goals. Impact will be measured indirectly through guest book comments, new mailing list sign ups, and increased attendance to future events and workshops. We will directly measure impact through surveys to both our general audience and to the workshop participants. We have already begun a process to gain feedback from our general audience through an email survey asking what events they attend and why or why they don't attend events, which will be sent out later this year. We will follow this up next year with another survey, which can follow up on the events outlined in this proposal as well. We can also compare attendance data from 2016 workshops and events to 2017 workshops and events to see if they have improved. Over the last two years we have kept spreadsheets recording event attendance, scholarship, costs, and income, (along with other information) to make sure we are running our programs efficiently and making the most impact with our resources. Keeping track of this data also helps us to understand why events were not successful. Workshop participants will fill out a short survey related to the specific event they attended.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Between the 2 programs 15 people were surveyed and wording varied slightly: ''Interest in art process (topic) being taught before residency (workshop):'' ''Interest in art process (topic) being taught after participating in residency (workshop):'' 8 incre
