Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

We will continue to build and strengthen our reputation for performing arts in this region which will be reflected in the attendance numbers and the quality of acts we book. We will provide a platform for at least 194 performing artists to share their talents. We will expose our community to between 25 and 35 different performing arts experiences, some in combination with our visual, media, and literary arts programs. By the completion of this grant period, we will: Record, via photo and video, the various stage and seating configurations that are required to accommodate the various acts that are booked. Track the number and variety of performing artists showcased at Great River Arts. Track the number and variety of art forms and musical genres presented. Track the number of up and coming performing artists that participate in Open Mic night.
