Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

To provide an opportunity for the Boys and Girls Club members to participate in the artistic, design and fabrication process, while being part of the creation of a beautiful new facility. To encourage young people to see creativity and innovation in all parts of industry. To ignite arts activities through an artist residency, that expands the members, staff and participants understanding of the arts. To provide a creativity in-service session for staff to make art integration relevant.We will evaluate the project mid-point, after the completion of the bike rack, with staff and key members. This will then inform the rest of the residency, so the artist can refine her workshops to fit both the resources and needs of the club. A final evaluation will take place at the conclusion of the project.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Successful youth arts activity which resulted in increased awareness and skill levels of participants. Successfully provided access to an underserved population of youth in the community.
