Appointment of new Partnership Manager

The North East Culture Partnership appoints Ruth Robson as fourth partnership manager.

Ruth fills a vacant post left by Peter Bromley’s 2020 retirement. She will be the partnership lead working with the heritage sector, ensuring full representation in all the partnership aims to achieve. Ruth comes from Sunderland, having left the region to go to university. Following a career in broadcasting, she moved into the culture sector, returning to the North East to work at Sage Gateshead and then the Bowes Museum. She has also worked at Durham Cathedral and trained as a North East England Blue Badge Tourist Guide.

Ruth Robson says, “I look forward to working with the board and my fellow partnership managers. The North East Culture Partnership brings together all the local authorities, regional universities and culture sector to speak with one voice on behalf of the region.

The immediate priority is the refresh of the Case for Culture, and I look forward to leading on consultation with the heritage sector here in the North East. It is an opportune moment to make a case for investment in culture across our region, on the back of the recent publication of the report by the All Party Parliamentary Group on the role of Northern Culture, and in the context of the government’s levelling up agenda. Playing a part in making a case for investment in this region’s remarkable heritage, helping it thrive, will be a privilege.”

Ruth joins existing Partnership Managers Matthew Jarratt, Jonathan Blackie and Teresa Kirby.
