Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Our overall goal is to reduce financial barriers to people participating in quality arts experiences in our community. We also aim to: 1. Reduce hearing barriers for events through sound reinforcement, 2. Capture the spirit and diverse viewpoints of our community, and create a living artistic legacy through a photo essay competition, 3. Provide a venue for the creation of exceptional theatrical learning experiences, 4. Feature work of rising young musicians in our area, 5. Expose the community to professional touring musical theater performances they might otherwise not experience, 6. Demonstrate through artistic expression the contributions veterans make to our community, 7. Explore the work of authors from our region, as well as the process of writing and getting work published.We will have a thorough survey with the added incentive of a drawing for a prize if you turn it in. We use the surveys for our programming and hope the drawing will increase the number we get back.
