Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Supporting artists in creating, producing and presenting high-quality arts activities: The change we expect is that we will hire one artist that will be supported to create a high quality art project. Our goal of the planning process is to work with an artist to develop a project in involving the public in creating artwork that will transform a set of stairs in the downtown area. Through this planning process we will be able to achieve success in working with an artist to develop an outline, design and budget, and then begin to raise funds for the project. We will have been successful when we have a completed proposal from an artist that will work well in the city of Montevideo and outlines a project with designs and budgets. We will then be able to write a project grant and move forward with finding partners and fundraising. On completion of the project, an exit interview will get feedback on the project and process and provide it in the final report
