Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

As a result of this project, youth from Stephen-Argyle Central and surrounding communities will have a new awareness, knowledge, and experience in the performing arts. Evaluation will occur through questionnaires collected from participants and audience members given on the last day of the workshop/residency that asks about the experiences during the workshop and the overall performance.

Measurable Outcome(s)

There was an increased number of youth that participated in the arts residency experience. There was an increase in the number of adults that viewed the arts residency production. The grant provides an arts experience that would otherwise be unavailable to the your of our area. This is an incredibly positive opportunity for our youth that may lead to participation in school and community arts activities.
