Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The outdoor instrument project will create a musical environment which will allow music to be created by all people, including our aging population, people with disabilities and an increasingly diverse culture. With outdoor instruments, musical expression is accessible to everyone regardless of musical training. The project will create creative access to all residents in the form of a functional and expressive piece of public art. We will use an evaluation form during the grand opening event to have a better understanding of community response to the installation. The main goals of the project will be reached overtime with community engagement. We hope that the main impact will take place in spontaneous play and listening of the outdoor instruments. A separate evaluation be created to focus on access, usability, perception, increased knowledge of instruments & music and narrative of individuals. We will also do sampling statistics of number of times the instruments are used on random days.
