Erin Gold | Office Manager & Researcher

Erin Gold Headshot
I recommend reading “He’s a Creep, but Wow, What an Artist!”  This piece acknowledges that great art is often made by people who harbor attitudes we find abhorrent. It asks us to sit with questions that have no easy answers. However, as researchers and art consumers, we must talk about and acknowledge these truths.”

Erin Gold is an experienced researcher, writer, project manager, and event coordinator. Since joining WolfBrown’s Detroit office in 2018, she has worked on a variety of evaluation, planning, and applied market search projects. Recent consulting projects have included:

  • Qualitative research for the University Musical Society to test the philanthropic case for supporting renegade and adventurous programs.
  • Research and planning work for Detroit Harmony, a citywide music education initiative. This project culminated in a multi-year implementation plan. 

Additionally, Erin assists in overseeing the maintenance of the WolfBrown dashboard system. She works with her colleagues to build customized dashboards that allow for WolfBrown clients to see their data visualized in various ways and compare different data sets

During the last three years of the pandemic, Erin played a critical role in the launch and maintenance of the Audience Outlook Monitor program’s Covid-19 study, an international applied market research study that delivered monthly findings on audience attitudes about the arts during Covid to the field.

Erin oversees the day-to-day office management and, in her own words, “makes sure the trains keep running on time.” Most recently, she managed the final phase of development for the new WolfBrown website and oversaw its launch in September, 2022. 

Erin holds a Bachelor of Arts in International Relations from Dickinson College and concentrated her studies on the history, politics, and economics of the SWANA (Southwest Asian and North African) region. After graduation, Erin worked for several educational non-profits in Sousse, Tunisia, and Amman, Jordan, before coming back to the Metro-Detroit area.

Outside of her professional work, Erin works as a stained glass artist. In September 2021, she participated in the inaugural Womxnhouse exhibition, an immersive exhibit that focused on the female experience in America today. Erin created two hanging installations that collectively acknowledged the individual losses she experienced throughout the Covid-19 pandemic while simultaneously celebrating community and the hope that arises from connection.

Erin can be reached directly via email.
