Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The Trust engages more people, more often in arts activities in WeDo because of its active partnerships and programs. We will evaluate our achievement in three distinct ways: 1) attendance at events; 2) fundraising and membership goals; 3) surveys from patrons, city dwellers and partner organizations. 2: We will increase the diversity of our theatre audiences; the audiences we bring to WeDo will participate in an increasingly wide range of offerings. We will evaluate: 1) partner engagement; 2) a pre/post survey of partner organizations and audience members; 3) number of participants in programming designed to attract diverse audiences.

Measurable Outcome(s)

In addition to 593,806 theatre goers, the Trust's new place making activities reached ~3,600 people with an event series tailored to their interests. Trust tracked event attendance, fundraising and membership goals. Trust also conducted surveys on perceptions of the organization and the cultural district (WeDo) with the general public, patrons and partner organizations. 2: By engaging the public, students and homeless people in the arts, HTT reached a more diverse audience with meaningful arts activities. HTT collected event attendance, tracked diversity and conducted surveys with the general public, patrons and partner organizations. Evaluation of place making included real-time surveys and internal post-event debriefs.
