Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

We will provide approximately 542 community members with eight opportunities to engage with professional touring artists and each other including demonstrations, master classes, documentary screenings, a school residency, library workshops, and a guest speaker. We will measure success through attendance records and year over year comparisons, repeat attendance, anecdotal feedback and conversation with community members and partners, and audience surveys.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Attendance: 504 out of projected 542 - attendance slightly lower at Frederick Ndabaramiye event than projected, possibly due to University's Spring Break, and a smaller class size than estimated at Riverway Learning Community; 8 events were completed.
