Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

As a result of this week-long program, at least 300 people will have greater understanding and knowledge of old Norway and, in particular, the Viking Age through fiber arts, music, lectures and demonstrations. Evaluation will occur through a follow-up meeting with planners, counting actual audience members, interviews with artists and audience members.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Comments on our Facebook page after performances, did not work. Interviewing both audience members and participants, making personal observations, and having a follow-up meeting with planners was accomplished. Our attendance numbers were not as hoped or planned for, very disappointing, except for the Uff-Da Days which was well attended.
