Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The Native arts project will open opportunities for all community members of northern Cass County to participate as an artist and audience participant in Native American related performance and visual arts.We will evaluate through exit polls from performances, talk back sessions, filled in audience feedback surveys, exit interviews with artists participating, and post production meetings. Also, we will track the numbers of participants at events from April 1 through August 30.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Facilitated a successful cultural heritage learning activity that attracted more participation than expected and provided increased access to youth participants.
