How do you measure the success of your program?
Generally our goal is to expand audience. This goal is relatively simple to measure – from number of tickets being sold to a show, through the number of students in our school, and even the number of likes and shares on our Facebook page.
We can definitely say this goal is successfully achieved and is
progressing each and every day.
Still, we have a long way to go. There are people who are not yet familiar with our doing and should, young artists we would want to foster, auditoriums we dream to fill, school we aspire to expand and give an appropriate response to every need and claim.
