Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Real or perceived barriers to arts participation and arts access are identified and addressed. New relationships with members of groups that have traditionally been underserved by the arts or by the applicant organization are built. Efficient outreach programming: Success will be measured by staff showing the results (the re-worked programming space with efficient storage) to the Board, and providing actual costs to show that the project was completed on-budget. We will know we’ve been successful if the spaces are de-cluttered and revised to serve as efficient and safe areas for providing arts outreach and education. Socially relevant programming: Success will be measured by responses to the audience surveys for performances and classes, attached. We will know we’ve been successful if every survey opportunity yields at least one response indicating that the experience was thought-provoking, uplifting, inspiring, etc. in a socially relevant way. Organizational development: Success will be measured in the course of performance evaluations of staff and the executive director, following participation in professional development activities. We will know we’ve been successful if staff and the Executive Director provide evidence of new ideas and plans for programming and organizational management, efficiencies and strategies aligned with our mission.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Yes, we achieved our planned outcomes. We used a survey for classes and performances. Survey results will be used to plan our future programming including a watercolor and painting class, fibers and weaving class, art history discussion, abstract drawing class and word art.
