CMAB Individual Artist Needs Assessment
RequiredRequired Question(s)
As one of 11 regional arts councils in the State of Minnesota, the Central MN Arts Board is tasked with building our programs and services based on the needs and feedback of individual artists, creatives, makers and culture-bearers in Region 7W (Benton, Sherburne, Stearns and Wright counties). .  

Part of how we gather feedback is through needs assessment surveys.  Please feel free to share critical feedback, places where CMAB programs and services are lacking or other aspects of the grant application and review process that are challenging or confusing to you.    

It is our JOB to build programs and services that respond to the needs and challenges of our region and you can help us to do that by being candid with your feedback.  No information shared in this survey will ever be considered in any application review for CMAB programs.

Thank you for your time.
