Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Support intercultural understanding by engaging an audience diverse in age, race, and background with live music of many cultures. With support from our Research Consultant, we will gauge and track audience demographics and change in attitudes about other cultures using survey results, interviews, observations, and anecdotes. 2: We will build demand for the arts by engaging non-traditional arts audiences and infusing the arts into typically non-artistic spaces and events. We will evaluate our success based on number of new audience members and on the impact that engaging with the arts has on these audience members.

Measurable Outcome(s)

The Cedar engaged the most diverse audience in its history with live music from many cultures to successfully support intercultural understanding. The Cedar worked with a Research Consultant to track audience demographics and feedback to analyze reach as well as change in attitudes about other cultures using survey results, interviews, observations, and anecdotes. 2: The Cedar effectively increased demand for the arts by exposing new audiences to arts opportunities through performances in non-traditional spaces. The Cedar evaluated its success by tracking new audience members when possible and gathering feedback on the impact of the activities from participants and partners.
