Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

As a result of this project, local performers will be hired and audience will show appreciation for local talent and interest in encouraging other local talent to perform next year. Evaluation will occur through a follow-up meeting with planners and the participating art teachers, counting actual numbers of youth and adults taking part in art making. Art project results will be uploaded to the Goose Fest Facebook page for participants to view. Bookmarks with Goose Fest Facebook info will be free and handed out to participants. Viewers to Facebook will be encouraged to ‘Like’ and ‘Comment’ their experiences. Also, we will count audience members at the musical performances.
