Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The desired result of our project, is for our community to provide a facility for artists to perform, and a place for families to gather together and enjoy all that the Arts community has to offer. Evaluation will occur through a follow-up meeting of the board of directors to discuss what was positive, what we could change to make the experience better, what did you most enjoy, would you have them back to perform again, etc. We would also keep track of the number of participants, performers, adults, and children audience members? Who is coming to our events, what is drawing them in? The board would look for comments on our Facebook page for personal observations.

Measurable Outcome(s)

We hosted five concerts that had an attendance of 759 people from around the region. Individuals were observed from the communities of Stephen, Argyle, Warren, Newfolden, Grand Forks, Crookston and Hallock etc. Our overall attendance at the concert series was higher than the Council had projected, and each concert's attendance grew as the series progressed through the summer.
