Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Park Rapids Lakes Area Arts Council expects at least 25 young artists, 20 or more youth musicians and 20 or more preschoolers to participate in the Youth Music and Arts Showcase IV. We plan to draw audiences of 25 or more to coffee-house style music events and performances in Pioneer Park in downtown Park Rapids, as well as an audience of at least 100 for our Saturday night concert. Park Rapids Lakes Area Arts Council hopes to increase pedestrian traffic downtown during the performances and to build a stronger connection between downtown businesses and area youth.Attendance will be measured at all Youth Music and Arts Showcase IV events to see if we made our goals. Youth musicians will be asked to complete a survey on ways to improve the event/experience. A survey will also be distributed to businesses displaying student artwork and/or hosting a performance asking if foot traffic increased as a result and asking for descriptions of any connections that were made with youth participants.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Twelve students entered 20 pieces of original artwork and 33 youth musicians participated in the Thursday night concert and/or music downtown Friday afternoon. 36 preschoolers did chalk art on downtown sidewalks. Audiences for the Thursday night concert a
