Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Real or perceived barriers to arts participation/access are addressed through at least 1,500 people seeing a Canadian folk music/dance ensemble and a large accordion band. Evaluation will occur through an artist questionnaire, personal observation of activities, follow up meeting with project planners, and attendance numbers.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Attendance numbers were evaluated through personal observation. We had a follow up meeting. 1000 programs for dedication were handed out. We spoke to the artists and they enjoyed the participation and feedback received from the audience. The community was appreciative of the spirit of cultural exchange of the Norwegian and French Canadian performers. The dedication left an overwhelming appreciation of the service and sacrifice of our military and community support to build this project.
