Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The Dreamery attracts quality performers because of the uniqueness of the venue and the reputation of accommodation.We collect zip codes from attendees for demographic data on people who choose not to respond to surveys collected at the end of each event. Finally, taking a hard look at financial returns speaks to success or lack thereof.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Play in the barn series expanded to include a workshop at a care center and marching in the Ag Days parade, which increased participation.
