In 2018 I undertook audience research and evaluation of the Brisbane Writers Festival, presented by UPLIT. This was predominately a quantitative project which opened up the possibility of collecting data across several areas: festival patron demographics, interests and reading habits; experiences of the festival; marketing; and sponsorship and philanthropy.

By taking care to study previous research and evaluation cycles and designing consistent methods into this project, the festival has been able to make reliable year-on-year comparisons.


I offer a consulting service for artists and organisations seeking to undertake research or evaluation. Services include:

  • scoping projects and pinning down research questions,
  • designing methods for data collection and analysis,
  • coordinating data collection,
  • analysis and reporting,
  • coaching to develop in-house capability.
