We are extremely pleased with our work with Evonne Gallardo, who is leading our arts nonprofit through a strategic and fundraising process. Evonne is an experienced, knowledgeable and collaborative consultant who is invested in her clients' success. She is a deep thinker who understands how to design participatory processes that bring people together to work on original solutions. She is wise and thoughtful, with her eye always on the big picture. I simply could not imagine embarking on this process with anyone else. She's become a valued extended member of our team and we would love to continue working with her. -CALA Alliance
In her consulting work Evonne Gallardo is highly effective in making meaningful, productive connections with a broad range of constituencies and stakeholders. She is approachable, open-minded and also clear and direct. -City of Phoenix, Office of Arts and Culture
Evonne not only possesses the rare ability to see and articulate the politics and nuances surrounding the vast and varying pockets of the Los Angeles art world, including museums, galleries, non-profits, and community centers but also the ability to code-switch and position herself within and outside of these institutions. She is a powerhouse of experience having worked at every type of arts organization imaginable and has come away with a thoughtful analysis of the way each works and relates to another. She is a true gem for this city to have and there is no one else who can offer such thorough insight and sensitivity towards her projects so seamlessly. She is amazing. -Shizu Saldamando, Artist
