Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

We will achieve full capacity participation in this activity, as the instructors and caretakers have responded to the request by past participants and 95% requested this programming to continue for the Adult Senior Center activities offered throughout the year. The Wilder staff was instrumental in recruiting and inviting seniors from the St. Paul area to participate in a fun and expressive medium of storytelling based on personal experience and imaginative creation. We request the participants and Wilder staff to review the class outline and objectives and based on feedback from both, we modify or enhance our objectives plan on the wishes and needs of the participants. We conduct pre-, post and on demand feedback surveys, with the final survey being a written product which we review with Wilder and Theater NOW staff subsequent to the MRAC final report.
