Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Over 1,300 Minnesotans from small to mid-size towns will experience and increase their understanding of another culture through music and storytelling. We will count attendance at each show. Each performance is followed by an informal discussion with, and written feedback from, the audience which will let us evaluate attendees’ experience.

Measurable Outcome(s)

1,089 Minnesotans from 28 small to mid-size towns experiences another culture through music or storytelling and learned about that culture. Audience members were asked to fill out short (4 or 5 question) surveys. All questions were open ended. For example: Please identify one thing you learned at this program. Was your life enriched because of the program? If so, how? We also asked how people heard about the program and gave a space for other comments. Libraries sent COMPAS copies of completed surveys along with a count of audience members.
