Measurable Outcome(s)

Our South of the Border: Traditions series provided four artist groups with a variety of twenty-five performance and teaching programming opportunities. Hamline University/The Minnesota Global Arts Institute’s series director Miriam Gerberg and the Evaluation consultant, Bethany Gladhill identified the stakeholders to survey. For the first program outcome the focus was on the presented artists and their experience with the project. They were interviewed to: clarify the project goals for the stakeholders; determine if the goals were met, identify challenges and issues to change, and determine best practices to complete, in the future. 2: Our South of the Border: Traditions series provided the public with a variety of twenty-five performance and workshops, many free, with four artist groups. For the second program outcome the focus was on the elementary school, the Hamline community, the surrounding Hamline-Midway community; the concert audiences. Evaluation data was collected through: Interviews, An audience survey, Marketing analysis, Series materials (press and outreach, posters, photos, and other information). These were used to clarify the project goals for the stakeholders, determine if the goals were met, and to identify challenges and issues to change in the future.
