This event is for STEAMhouse members only.

STEAMhouse members are invited to join Deborah Robinson, Head of Exhibitions at The New Art Gallery Walsall for an informal conversation about her curatorial practice and how she works with artists.

Led by our Creative Director Ruth Claxton, this is the latest in a series of events designed to demystify the commissioning process and help artists understand how different curators and organisations work, and how projects and relationships with artists evolve.
