Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

We will engage an audience diverse in age, race, and background with live music of many cultures to foster intercultural understanding. With support from our Research Consultant, we will gauge and track audience demographics and change in attitudes about other cultures using survey results, interviews, observations, and anecdotes. 2: We will build demand for the arts by presenting artists and work relevant to the communities we serve and by presenting arts in nontraditional spaces. We will evaluate our success based on number of new audience members and on the impact that engaging with the arts has on these audience members.

Measurable Outcome(s)

We engaged a diverse, all-ages audience with live music of many cultures, helping to increase intercultural understanding. We tracked audience demographics and changes in attitudes about other cultures using survey results, interviews, observations, and anecdotes, with support from our research consultant. 2: We built demand for the arts by connecting with new audience members through two community-based residencies in Minneapolis, Mankato and Saint Cloud. The Cedar tracked new audience members and audience expansion numerically and geographically and by gathered feedback on the impact of the activities from participants and Greater Minnesota partners with the support of our research consultant.
