We evaluated the success of this program in a number of ways, mostly informal. Through group discussion following the events, we made space for the students to debrief as a large group. Surveys were conducted and collected by teachers at pre and post event. We followed up with the educators and artists for their feedback. We reviewed social media engagement.
