Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Duluth Superior Area Educational Television Corporation - WDSE-WRPT's goal is to not only to help share the arts with everyone living in region, but also to offer diversity, culture and education to those watching our programming. For this project, our objective is to commission a piece of artwork created by Native American Carl Gawboy, centered on storytelling, and bring awareness to the Native American oral tradition of storytelling. This process will feature how we can learn about the importance of storytelling and traditions in tribal life, how stories are passed down, and about local customs. As we capture Gawboy's artistic process, we will share his story through public screenings and ultimately the unveiling of the finished piece. Duluth Superior Area Educational Television Corporation - WDSE-WRPT will be able to measure the success of the Carl Gawboy project through several mediums. With the scheduled public events, we will be able to track the number of people in attendance and be able to speak one-on-one with attendees for feedback on the project. With segments being broadcast on air, we can determine the number of viewers through our ratings system, and from posting clips on our website, we will be able to measure the number of clicks from visitors. Through social media promotions, we will be able to gauge the public's interaction by views, likes and comments listed on the various platforms.
