Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Outcomes that the Depot Preservation Alliance aims to achieve through this project are: a) to emphasize the importance of performing arts in the community, b) to increase access to the performing arts by bringing new talents, and c) by holding this popular event in a centralized location as Baudette is, gives the many surrounding areas the opportunity to travel a short distance and have the perception that the Baudette Depot is a provider of local arts and culture. Methods: good time photos, comment cards, and oral conversations plus partial list of written surveys as handout upon entry to event.

Measurable Outcome(s)

We achieved our outcome goals as set forth in our plan. Having this type of music/art here in Baudette brought in many that had never experienced "Bluegrass" music and also having the members explain and give ideas and instructions regarding how their music is developed and brought out in their own artistic ways. The teaching tools were very well received as well. Our evaluations were done by volunteers going around to those in attendance, that way feedback was a "sure and accurate," (attached)
