Ruth Claxton

Ruth is an artist who makes things. Sometimes those things are her own artworks, and sometimes they are projects like Sonic Signals with Abbas Zahedi, exhibitions like Birmingham Show, Production Show and Sculpture Show, resources like the Birmingham Art Map, programmes like Workshop Birmingham, infrastructure like STEAMhouse or multiverses like Eastside Projects.

She co-leads Eastside Projects with Gavin Wade and they work together to curate and produce projects and exhibitions, make things happen, imagine and run the organisation, find the money, and develop strategic plans. She leads on artists support programmes including EOP and The Syllabus.

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

She works four days a week and her salary is £33,224 (£41,531 pro-rata)
