Ruth Claxton

Ruth is an artist who makes things. Sometimes those things are artworks for exhibitions or public artworks and sometimes they are resources like the Birmingham Art Map, programmes like Workshop Birmingham, infrastructure like STEAMhouse or multiverses like Eastside Projects.

She works with Gavin Wade to make things happen, imagine and run the organisation, find the money, curate and produce projects and exhibitions and develop strategic plans. She leads on the development of artists support programmes including EOP, The Syllabus and  STEAMhouse.

She is a Company Director and one of Eastside Projects’ founders.

She works four days a week and her salary is £29,429 (£36,786 pro-rata)
