Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Minnesotans with disabilities of all ages will use VSA Minnesota programs, services and resources to actively engage the arts in their communities. We will document attendance at all performances, workshops, residencies and exhibits conducted by our organization. Summative evaluations will be conducted for each of these experiences based on specific program outcomes. 2: Arts administrators around the state will use VSA Minnesota accessibility resources to improve their outreach and service to people with disabilities. We will document all phone, email and face-to-face inquiries (meetings, conversations) from arts organizations about access to people with disabilities. All resulting actions will also be documented.

Measurable Outcome(s)

VSA Minnesota programs and services connect and engage people with disabilities with artists and arts organizations in their schools and communities. VSA Minnesota tracks participation by people with disabilities at residencies, workshops, artist meetings, exhibits and its grant program. It also tracks individual inquiries via phone and email regarding its services. 2: State arts administrators use information and monetary resources provided by VSA Minnesota to improve their engagement of people with disabilities. The funding and accessibility services provided by VSA Minnesota to state arts organizations are evaluated for effectiveness based on final reports and follow-up conversations with staff from the recipient organizations.
