From ticketing data, 80% of total audiences for both residencies were first-time participants, twice our projected goal. The ticketing system tracked most of the data for the residencies. Ticket sales were tracked by category- adult, senior, student- as well as special discounts and coupon codes. Overall, 80% were first time participants, twice our goal. Student participation was at 10% for Kidjo, lower than planned and 45% for Wu Man, higher than anticipated. Stories and personal impressions of the residency impact was gathered from engagement participants and patrons at the shows. 2: Cultural community relationships started by drawing in new attendees, and deepened with select organizations interested in the artists or project. While the ticketing system captured important data regarding new attendees and participation at events throughout the residencies, this data to measure this proposed outcome was tracked primarily through emails, with further assistance via telephone calls and discussions. This effort stretched over several weeks. It was discovered that email isn't the best community method with cultural communities. Personal asks and phone calls work better and produce reliable results.
