Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Create community activities where the arts are unexpected such as the Summer Dance program and Children’s Festival. Bring at least 50,000 children/families to the Children’s Festival including art-making activities in the parks and attract 5,000 dancers and onlookers to free Summer Dance concerts and lessons. 2: Ordway will increase and diversify programming to coincide with the opening of the new 1,100-seat concert hall in 2015. Successfully complete Taking Our Place Centerstage: African Diaspora in Harmony, and attract at least 10,000 to programs at the Ordway and in the community touching on African/African American arts.

Measurable Outcome(s)

The arts are interwoven into every facet of community life through community activities such as the Summer Dance program and the Children's Festival. Through the Children’s Festival (67,491 families attended) and the Summer Dance program in June and July, audiences have the opportunity to experience the arts for free on stage and in nearby parks. 2: People of all ages, ethnicities, and abilities participate in the arts through increased diverse programming in the new 1,100-seat Concert Hall. After a successful series of “Taking Our Place Centerstage” in 2013-2014, in the past year, over 300,000 people attended more than 400 events that crossed cultures and spanned artistic disciplines, notably Raices y Suenos: The Artistry of Cuba.
