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. Surveys including both quantitative and free response questions will be given for all participants: to authors, teachers, support staff, and audiences. This data will be collected at both the halfway point and end of classes. The results will be analyzed by teams of teachers, partners, and authors at the start of each new semester to see how we can improve future classes.
