Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Barriers to participation in high quality arts activities will be identified and addressed.In the past, cost and transportation issues have been identified as barriers for those who would otherwise participate in arts activities through Community Education. By moving the community theater production to a more centralized location for our communities, and holding workshops for youth in our main communities and providing transportation from our outlying towns, we hope to address the issue of transportation. Grant dollars will allow us to lower our participation fee so that more students can afford to participate.

Measurable Outcome(s)

100% of survey respondents felt the presentation was good or excellent. We performed for a very sympathetic audience. All felt the program met their needs, and would like to see more of the same. Several comments reflected on the level of the material (challenging for students), and one reflected disappointment that we only had one show.
