Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

To support the public presentation of socially and culturally relevant art that fosters dialogue and engagement, and to commission and present new work by Minnesota artists of color. We will track attendance, audience surveys, data collection, audience dialogues and conversations, as well as artist circles and feedback sessions throughout the year. 2: To provide comprehensive leadership training, resources, and mentorship opportunities for Minnesota artists and communities using the arts to build healthy, capable and equitable communities. We will work with a team of external evaluators to measure our impact and create a public-facing report.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Intermedia Arts presented thirteen weeks of performance, five weeks of film, 42 of exhibitions, sold out shows, and commissioned new work by artists of color. Audiences were tracked and evaluated through ticket sales and surveys and one-on-one post- reflection interviews. 2: IA engaged 1200+ national artists and community members, trained 90+ new leaders and, statewide, supported 10+ arts based community development projects. IA contracted with Rainbow Research and TerraLuna Collaborative to collect data and ensure the impact and relevancy of our training and engagement. We have produced two evaluation reports this year to share our findings with the broader community.
