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)

While at the summit I was able to connect with many individuals and had great conversations. One individual in particular was Jerritt Johnston who works with Northern Consultants. I had the opportunity to share with Jerritt a little more on our project with Project Uniting Southwest Hmong and where we are planning to go with it. Through that conversation Jerritt and I made a connection and conversed on the potential of developing leadership training opportunities for the Hmong community. Not only that, Jerritt’s presentation regarding fundraising was very inspirational and informative.
