Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Artists and arts organizations build relationships with members of, or organizations that serve, groups that have traditionally been underserved by the arts or by the applicant organization. Anecdotal responses, contacts made, relationships built, ideas generated.

Measurable Outcome(s)

I came away believing that the future is hopeful and our small towns are not necessarily losing their vitality. With technology we are connected to the world and a strong arts presence in our community and schools will sweeten the deal when people are looking for a quality way of life. I found opportunities to network with other artists and community arts advocates and believe this is essential for growth both personally and for my community. I found the presenters to be very welcoming to questions even after the sessions were finished.
