Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The entire community will be invited to attend all of the activities. The focus on all age groups will build on an intergenerational set of activities for the community. All participants will be sent an online survey and there will be surveys onsite for attendees who do not have technology. Also, data collection will be done using Community Education's software.

Measurable Outcome(s)

The goals were tracked by evaluations. 90% of program participants rated the performances as 'high' or 'very high' quality. Over 50% of participants had never attended an arts activity locally.
