Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Increase exposure to the arts for community youth. At least 150 children, representing the diversity of the Wadena community, will attend the performance of Voices from Ellis Island. Show a measurable increase of 20% attendance over prior arts programs hosted by Wadena County Historical Society. Over 80% of the audience surveyed will say that they have a greater understanding of the immigrant experience as a result of this theatrical performance. We will work with the Wadena Deer Creek School to involve maximum classroom participation and count the number of children attending the performance. We will track audience attendance and compare it with previous years, then record this information for future reference. We will distribute a survey and document the outcome of the results of this performance.
