Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

This project will increase opportunities, particularly for people ages 50 and older. It will reduce barriers by serving residents in the retirement community who will not have to leave the campus to attend the presentation. I will have a guest book and hand out notecards at the talk so people can write down their musical memories. I will write a post about the collected responses on my blog along with a recording of my talk, also the Vintage Band Festival website to reach a wider audience. I will track the blog post page views.

Measurable Outcome(s)

My project increased the number of quality arts opportunities in the Northfield area, particularly for people ages 50 and older. I also reduced barriers to participating by scheduling my presentations at a local retirement center and at the Northfield Senior Center, both ADA-accessible venues.
