A fact about Clayton Shaw

Clayton Shaw's ideal STEAMlabs delegate

I am a passionate advocate of arts and culture and I’m particularly interested in the interplay between art, society, and technology.

Prior to STEAMhouse I was Associate Director at Sampad, a Birmingham based South Asian arts development organisation, Combined Arts Officer at Arts Council England, Cultural Partnerships Officer at Birmingham City Council, and Events Officer at the Herbert Arts Gallery in Coventry.

I studied Fine Art at the University of Central England (now BCU), and a Masters graduate in European Cultural Policy and Management, University of Warwick. I also held a position of honorary research fellow at the University of Birmingham in the College of Art and Law.

I currently occupy board director positions for Culture Central, the Whitworth Wallis Trust, and The Other Way Works.

As Programme Manager for STEAMhouse I am responsible for overall project delivery and work closely with the team on areas of capital development, financial management, programme design and delivery, marketing and PR, strategic partnerships, research collaborations, and sector development.

Collaboration occurs a lot in our daily lives. It’s nothing new in the workplace or working with external partners, however, to me, where collaboration gets interesting is when working with others from vastly different fields who can work constructively towards a shared goal and co-creation. The results can be powerful.

New opportunities for artists and professionals working in the creative industries to develop relationships across a range of sectors.

Too many to mention, however, I’m interested in challenges that shine a spotlight on social issues, connect with enterprise, and bring a together different modes of thought skills, and experiences.

In this hyperconnected world, unsurprisingly, I couldn’t live without my mobile.

I’m an open book.

It would have to be Leonardo da Vinci for me. Artist, inventor, scientist, mathematician; the original Renaissance Man with a richness of curiosity, it would be mind-blowing.
