Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

American Craft Council expands opportunities for craft in everyday life through partnerships with local artists and organizations, shows and programming, traditional and social media. American Craft Council assesses Minnesotan’s engagement with craft through the success of events and activities with partner organizations, increased use of American Craft Council resources, and response to traditional and social media. 2: American Craft Council promotes quality craft experiences for Minnesotans through engaging and award winning programming, awards, magazine, library, online resources and partnerships. American Craft Council assesses success through markers of excellence and engagement: financial stability; growth in attendance, donations, membership numbers; increased recognition and opportunities for artists.

Measurable Outcome(s)

ACC’s innovative programming and partnerships with organizations both inside and outside of the craft field provided opportunities to explore creative activities taking place in Minnesota. ACC used attendance, surveys and feedback to gauge Minnesotan’s engagement at events and activities like ACC’s Saint Paul Show, Let’s Make, Hip Pop, and Library Salons. Increased use of ACCs website, digital resources, and social media was also reviewed. 2: Through artistic excellence, unique and engaging programming, and organizational fiscal stability, ACC provides economic opportunities for artists and quality experiences for the entire Minnesota community. Direct feedback from show participants, including new emerging artists, is used to evaluate ACC programming. Key data, including membership and donors, attendance, website visits, and balanced budget, are all ways that ACC determines effectiveness.
