Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

1. The Fine Arts Program’s artists will share their creative process in order to develop creative right-brain thinking. 2. The Fine Arts Program will be part of the fabric of campus and community life. 3. Programming will build experiences that are open to all and encourage future engagement. Post-event partner assessments and post-performance receptions to provide audiences opportunities to engage in discussions of what they just experienced.

Measurable Outcome(s)

The College of Saint Benedict presented twenty-six residency activities that cut across academic disciplines and reached deeply into the community and connected our audiences with right-brain activities and artists. The College of Saint Benedict built relationships with Talahi Elementary to create a day-long cultural exchange with Spirit of Uganda. The College of Saint Benedict partnered with the Prairie Lakes Youth Detention facility to bring drumming and hip-hop to incarcerated youth. We partnered with the Spirituality Center to host Writing as Spiritual Discipline with Over the Rhine. We hosted seven post-performance receptions, with an average of 24% of audience members participating. Our partners worked with us from beginning to end and provided post-event assessments.
