Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Broaden arts programming and participation opportunities for young performers and audiences by making more events available and affordable. Measured quantitatively by the numbers of performers and audience members who participate in our various programming, and by the numbers of events and opportunities offered. 2: Broaden the organization's support structure with the aim of improving the overall quality of arts experiences for our community. Through post-event analyses, annual internal reviews of programming, staff/board assessments, advisory board meetings, and solicited audience feedback.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Broaden arts programming and participation opportunities for young performers and audiences by making more events available and affordable. We provided performance and programming opportunities unique to this community. The numbers of participants and audience grew from past years. We were able to expose our young people to arts experiences they'd never before encountered. 2: Broaden the organization's support structure with the aim of improving the overall quality of arts experiences for our community. Operating support grant funds enabled us to free up necessary resources to hire more staff in both box office (greatly improving customer service) and in technical support, which had the effect of improving the overall technical quality of our events. Our audiences took notice of both, and responded anecdotally in a very positive manner.
