Hey you, I'm Rue. Below you will find a list of recentish projects and experience.
I am currently running a series of live and digital workshops to explore how Southampton can better serve the creatives who live, work and play here. If you'd like to find out more or meet for a cuppa, send an email here or DM me here. My door is always open for mentorship, non-profit events and initiatives.
Gender + Sexuality In The Urban Realm
The public lecture series is the first element within a strategy focused upon raising public awareness, engagement, and participation in a curated process of re-imagining the public urban realm of Southampton. 'Catch Ruth chatting ‘Our City’ - a feminist utopia, design thinking and collaborative manifestos to unite a city.'

Ladies, Wine & Design SouthamptonCo-Founder & Co-Host with Jazzy Olive
A series of events, workshops and talks for South England creatives. We'll wine*, dine and have casual conversations on a wide variety of topics relating to creativity, business, and life. If you’re a student or creative and would like to join, email us to register your interest or look out for events posted on our socials.
**booze is entirely optional, you can drink tea, coffee or soft drinks!
Jessica Walsh started Ladies, Wine & Design in New York after doing a lot of thinking and reading on why only 3% of women in the creative industry are creative directors or in leadership positions. She believes we can change that through mentorship and championing each others work. We couldn't agree more, and so Ladies, Wine & Design Southampton was born. We look forward to meeting you lovely creative ladies soon.
If you have any questions you can email us, join our facebook group or dm us on instagram or twitter.
