Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The quality, type, and number of arts opportunities for audiences increases through this performing arts experience for community members in the Stephen regional area. Evaluation will occur through a follow-up meeting with project planners, a questionnaire, and audience and participant count.

Measurable Outcome(s)

The Arts Council meets monthly and have evaluated the purchases and we believe it will affect over 300 audience members next year, by advertising with Graphic display system and by having tent awnings more people will attend the outdoor events in case of inclement weather and it being too hot outside for our outdoor concerts.
