We will consider this experiment a success if we learn a lot – which requires that we make some mistakes, and that we have a process for regular feedback and dialogue along the way. We don’t want everything to go right – we want to learn and try things, and experiment.
We will consider this experiment a success if we are able to hold the tension and discomfort of this effort in a positive/creative way, if we can keep our sense of humor and our overall openness to learning and growing together.
We will also consider this experiment a success if we are able to have a net positive in attendance in comparison to the same period in prior years. This is a lesser goal because it usually takes about a year to re-stabilize and yield a net positive.
