Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The number of Minnesotans who are able to participate in the arts increases by aiming for 25 children participating from 19 children last year and increase by 3 new families. Evaluation will occur through a participant questionnaire, notes related to personal observation, audience, artist, and youth count.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Our goal was to increase the number of families participating: that was reached. There were children of 17 families. The children age 10 or older filled out a simple evaluation form, asking whether it was a worthwhile experience and if they would participate again next year. All were positive. Parents express to us on the planning team much they appreciate this community effort to apply for a grant, connect with the theater group, and arrange for a venue.
