More about Patternmakers

Established in 2015, and trading as Patternmakers since 2016, we are a research agency and insight service for creators. 

Much of our work is made up of consulting to arts and cultural organisations. Our clients include some of the largest cultural institutions in Australia, as well as smaller artist collectives and producing companies. Our project work covers program evaluation, audience research, data analysis and evidence-based planning. 

We are also building an Education and Events program, to help creators build skills in research, analysis & evaluation. This May, we will be launching a Data Discussion series with Data after Dark at Vivid Ideas. We also deliver training modules in-house for organisations like NIDA, and deliver guest lectures for subjects like Festivals Management at the University of Sydney.

The team

Our founder, Tandi Palmer Williams, is an alumni of the Australia Council's Arts Leaders Program, and is a trusted advisor of senior managers and artistic leaders across the sector. 

The core team includes Research Manager Brooke Boyce, Business Administrator Penny Cannan and Operations Manager Jodie Bombardier.

We also have several Advisors, who work with us on a contract basis, including consultant Peter Matthews, researcher Bridget Jones and disability expert Morwenna Collett. 

We also work with writers, editors, designers and programmers on a regular basis.

What we offer

Our core team and contractors all work from home, or a location of their choice. We meet regularly at client sites across the country, and for co-working 'sprints' in Sydney. 

Flexible conditions mean the team can choose their own hours. We have a set of values that we hold dear - and we always strive to delight our clients, colleagues and partners. 

We offer a competitive hourly rate, plus superannuation and all insurances.
