"Shivani was an outstanding producer to work with! Her abilities to tackle any complication with thoughtfulness, grace and understanding were critical to completing the Royal Alberta Museum project. She is an invaluable asset to have on your team, and I was lucky to work with her."

"Shivani Saini is a skilled Project Manager who empowers creative talent to tell challenging stories with insight and vision. As Producer and Project Manager of Aboriginal Media for the Royal Alberta Museum, her flexible process, commitment to collaboration and timely communication kept the work moving at pace through every production challenge. She is an asset to any team."
Andres LandauCo-Founder / Victory Social Club
"Shivani was the Producer & Project Manager for WorldViews 360: What Makes Us Strong, an immersive 360 degree film installed at the Royal Alberta Museum in Edmonton. She worked closely with our team at Victory Social Club in Toronto making sure all the lines of communication were open and available with the various team members including the executive producers and directors, to those involved with more technical aspects of the project. Her professionalism, positivity and drive were a key part of the success of it all."
Kristi Hansen & Vanessa SabourinArtistic Producers and freelance theatre artists / Azimuth Theatre
"Azimuth Theatre’s staff and its board of directors had the pleasure of working with Shivani and Atelier Culturati as the facilitator for our Strategic Planning work in 2019 / 2020, resulting in the assembly of a 5-year Strategic Plan. Shivani’s vast skill set as a producer, a facilitator, and Atelier Culturati’s focus on projects that elevate the social conscious made her the perfect fit with Azimuth’s social mandate. She is organized, driven, flexible, and is able to offer detailed observations and suggestions that make each project she undertakes unique and specific to her clients’ needs. We look forward to the next opportunity to work with Shivani and would recommend Atelier Culturati to any organization looking to deepen their community outreach, and to think outside the box in their public relations and engagement."
Murray UtasArtistic Director / Fringe Theatre
"Shivani brilliantly balances an ability to lead with that of being a part of the team. Her work on our Chinook Series was outstanding and always professional. Our event is extremely challenging as it combines numerous programming streams that all have their own expectations which then need to be communicated out to the public in a cohesive and united way. The execution of this was exemplary."
Reneltta ArlukArtistic Director / Akpik Theatre
"Atelier Culturati engages outreach with an aesthetic that invites audiences to be part of the conversation. Akpik Theatre first worked with Shivani on the workshop production of Pawakân Macbeth. Atelier Culturati documented the creative process as well as promotion. The media we received filled our theatre for its entire run. We are continuing our work with Atelier Culturati as we move forward with the tour in 2020."
Cliff CardinalPlaywright, Actor & Musician / Independent Artist
"Shivani cultivated relationships that garnered an award and gave us presence in the conversation at the 2018 Edinburgh Festival Fringe, the largest arts market in the world. We couldn't have been successful without her skill and tirelessness."

"Shivani is a team leader and player, an initiator, and is skilled at seeing a project through to its completion. She has a precise eye for detail, and is an absolute joy to work with. Because of Shivani, the projects we have done together shine. She gets the job done like no other!"
Christine Sokaymoh FrederickExecutive & Artistic Director / Dreamspeakers Festival Society
"Shivani is trustworthy, reliable, creative and professional, and with her extensive network and background as a producer and consultant, she has lent tremendous capacity to what we do. She’s able to grasp our vision and guide us in ways to achieve it, and her records and reports make my reporting so much easier. I like working with her year after year because she also helps us see and measure our growth and impact. As our organization evolves, we look forward to working with Atelier Culturati".
