Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Minnesotans involved in community organizations will have access to arts programs that let them experience, understand, create and connect with art. Programs held at five or more types of organizations: schools, shelters, libraries, hospitals. Residency participants will create at least one piece of original art. 85% of participants agree they learned. 2: People from across Minnesota, of many ethnicities and abilities, will participate in COMPAS programs. At least 35% of COMPAS’ roster artists will be people of color. Programs reach people in all eight Minnesota congressional districts. Everyone at a residency is given the opportunity to create art.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Minnesotans involved in community organizations had access to arts programs that let them experience, understand, create and connect with art. COMPAS tracked the types of organization in which programs were held, and asked artists and customers (e.g. teachers, activity directors, etc.) to report on the art that was created and if new skills / information was learned. 2: People from across Minnesota, of many ethnicities and abilities, participated in COMPAS programs. We tracked the ethnicity of our artists and (to the best of our ability) participants, recorded program locations, surveyed artists and customers about participant inclusivity, and asked participants what they did.
