Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

To feature and share with our region three diverse Minnesota artists who excel in their respective areas. To give participants a deeper connection to artists through workshops and residencies. To encourage attendance at the main stage show after participants have experienced the workshops. 1. A survey to teachers for student workshops and a survey to adults for adult workshops. (We’ve found that surveys to students are ineffective.) 2. We’ll continue our “penny for your thoughts” jars after performances. These are jars that we put out and people can give us “their two cents” by tossing coins into jars labeled with “love it,” “got me out of the house” and “not for me.” 3. The after show/after workshop chatter is always one of our best measurements. We collect these comments and use them for review and evaluation.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Evaluation results were exceptional, with the most effective tool being the Outreach Director's attendance at every workshop and performance, and her constant interaction with teachers, students and audience members. This helped build trust not only with students and employees at the host facilities but with the artists. Additionally, all outreach events were reviewed in follow up emails û which resulted in high marks and tremendous appreciation for project activities. Two examples: Email from School Advisor Nadine Brown/Pelican Rapids: I just want to THANK YOU AGAIN for the phenomenal opportunity you gave us last week with VOCALESSENCE! I am beyond words. Email from White Earth School Counselor Kari Swabooda regarding Sha Cage: The session really gave a powerful message to the girls. They seemed very inspired after the sessionàhopefully they will take what they learned and spread the message to (their) peers.
