Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The goal of this project is to implement a residency of four 'workshop presentations' of 'Mine Songs' during Zeitgeist happy hour the 2nd Thursdays of October, November, December, and January. An estimated 75 people will pass through the Zeitgeist atrium during each presentation, with a total of 300 adults benefiting from the grant proposal. The goal of implementing the residency of 'workshop presentations' is very simply measured, as I know whether I have implemented them! In terms of adult audience benefit, I will have someone present to take a general headcount. Although with a happy hour, people come and go, and head counting can become difficult, but it is very possible to get a ballpark estimate of total attendance over the four presentations.
