Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

As a result of this program, the students of Red Lake Middle School will discover how integrating art in the form of a song and video enhances their self-expression and can help them reach their full potential, become more resilient, and become self-empowered. As a result of the program, the citizens of the Red Lake Nation will experience a greater hope for the future, respect for the community, and broaden their outlook on the ability to create art in one of its many forms. The Arts Management Team at Red Lake Middle School plans to survey artists, participants and audience during and after the activity and also have a follow-up meeting with the planners to go over the results.
