Ruth works at STEAMhouse two days a week and primarily supports our creative members – in particular artists, designer-makers, cultural workers and arts organisations – to develop new work and become stronger, more resilient businesses.
As an artist she has shown work and made projects across the UK and internationally – check out her website here.
She is a founding Director of Eastside Projects and has been building artist led projects in Birmingham for over 20 years. She has curated exhibitions, established artist support programmes, sold artwork, developed offsite projects, created artmaps, set up studios and built makerspaces.
Alongside this she has worked as a sculpture technician and a lecturer, so is as comfortable supporting the development of creative work and ideas as she is working on more pragmatic aspects of business, project and practice development.
