Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Our events attract people of all ages and ethnicities, greatly expanding arts participation. Recording attendance numbers, photos taken of various activities, positive interview reactions, "next year" inquiries, good profits, final review and offers to participate by people not connected to us.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Our goals are always to increase the number of participants in our programming. Because of space limitations, we are doing more out in the community, and the positive response testifies to its success. Our small staff work hard to make our efforts successful.
