Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Increase youth participation in music and the arts through downtown concerts. Increase awareness of traditional Native American drum groups. Draw audiences downtown to experience art and music.Survey youth musicians and downtown business owners and collect anecdotal responses from the audiences.

Measurable Outcome(s)

18 students completed survey forms. Feedback from Park Rapids Lakes Area Arts Council volunteers and Park Rapids Downtown Business Association asked that participants in the Thursday night concert be screened (through auditions or submitting videos or in some other way) to make sure the audience’s expectations are met. As a result of challenges with sound last year, 218 Music Production ensured smoother transitions this year, which everyone noticed.
