Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The measurable outcomes we hope to achieve are 1) an increase in audience size by at least 20% over past projects, 2) an audience racial diversity increase of at least 15% over past projects (based on ratios of Chinese to non-Chinese; Arabic to non-Arabic), 3) a 15% increase in print and/or broadcast media attention than in the past, and/or a 15% increase in establishing new media relationships; 4) comments on the evaluation sheets showing 90% or more positive responses; 5) 100% of our partners express a desire to work with us again on future projects; 6) feedback on evaluation forms is 90% or more positive, 7) at least 20% of the audience indicates they have been introduced to the artists, and/or instruments for the first time. We will evaluate our success by the response of audience, artists, and staff at all locations documented on evaluation forms, and comparison of audience size and diversity of the audience in comparison to similar past projects. We will consider our project a success if 1) the audience size increases by at least 20% over past projects, 2) audience racial diversity increases by at least 15% over past projects (based on ratios of Chinese to non-Chinese; Arabic to non-Arabic), 3) we get more print and broadcast media attention than in the past, and/or establish new media relationships; 4) comments on the evaluation sheets are 90% or more positive; 5) 100% of our partners express a desire to work with us again on future projects; 6) feedback on evaluation forms is 90% or more positive, 7) at least 20% of the audience indicates they have been introduced to the artists, and/or instruments for the first time.
