Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

600 individuals will attend eight performances of Freedom Daze, produced as part of the Southern Theater's ARTShare program. Audience surveys and documentation from post-show discussions will show that Freedom Daze inspired 75% of the audience members to think about Islamophobia from a new perspective. The first outcome will be assessed based on the nightly box office reports from the Southern Theater that will show the number of audience members at each performance. The second outcome will be assessed based on written audience surveys, and post-performance feedback in the form of post-show discussions.
