STEAMhouse co-founders Ruth Claxton and Alessandro Columbano, talk through the journey from an idea to establish production space for local creatives, to the opening of STEAMhouse – a 1400sqm facility in the centre of Digbeth. They’ll discuss the ups and downs of the process and how they used different tools and networks to build the communities of interest and partnerships needed to realise this ambitious project, and will explore what they learnt along the way, touching on some of the innovative outcomes, emerging from STEAMhouse.
This event is part of the Birmingham Design Festival which runs from 6-8 June 2019. STEAMhouse is very pleased to be hosting the Product strand of talks and workshops. For the full programme visit www.birminghamdesignfestival.org.uk/
