Gerard Atkinson

ARTD Consultants
Sydney, Australia
I joined ARTD in 2017, bringing experience as an evaluator and administrator in the arts and culture sector in Australia, Europe, and the United States. I design and deliver evaluation strategies and frameworks for program portfolios, and manage complex projects. I also like to get my hands dirty analysing administrative datasets and developing dashboards and visualisations that enable stakeholders to understand the meaning of complex data at a glance. Prior to joining ARTD, I was the Manager of Evaluation for the Australia Council for the Arts, leading the formation of the team and development of the evaluation strategy for the agency. I also have a solid understanding of the context for government programs and service delivery experience, having worked with AusIndustry and IP Australia in front-line roles. Oh, and I have a side career as an opera singer.
