Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The event will bring Austin natives back to showcase their accomplishments, improve the city's economy, give employers leverage to recruit and retain, and motivate younger generations to stay or move back to the community.The number of people who attend will help determine the nature of future festivals. Our goals will be reached if we are able to repurpose the utilities building into a space for the arts to be shared with the residents of Austin.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Artists, volunteers and the community all had glowing feedback to share. Messages continued for several weeks.
