Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Twenty plus Norwegian folk artists will offer free demonstrations to residents of the City of Peterson, region, and visitors. Our event offers those challenged by age, income, and disability an opportunity to learn and enjoy the folk art of our ancestors. Data Collection: number of artists, variety of folk art, attendance. Surveys: randomly collected at Bandstand where Norwegian dancers and musicians will entertain Interviews: randomly select ten elderly or physically challenged participants.

Measurable Outcome(s)

We offered 16 varieties of Nordic folk art, then made an activity sheet listing all artists/events. Participants had to complete a number to enter a drawing, return that activity sheet to the Information Table and were asked for comments.
