Creative City Road Map April e-update

The Creative City Road Map planning process is helping us think strategically about how the city’s arts and creative assets can contribute to the local and regional economy and improve Minneapolis’ quality of life. Find the planning process mission here.

A is for analysis…

April is all about analysis of the data we’ve gathered during the planning process. Remember that glossary of terms we shared with you? Well, here it is again and check out the new jargon:

Analyzing community data

Qualitative data

We, along with the Artist Engagement Teams and our consultants, Voices for Racial Justice, are up to our eyeballs in data. We’re sorting through the data and making sense of the patterns and themes that have surfaced through our Data Jams.

Here’s a sample listing of some of the themes we identified through the Data Jams.

Quantitative data

At our April 15 Data Update, we shared our data analysis methodology and some of the results from our survey collection. We’re seeing that the surveys delivered through creative community engagement (just over 600 surveys, about 30% of total surveys completed) reached respondents who were younger and more racially diverse than respondents we reached through the online survey (see below). Check out more survey-related numbers here.
