I’m Ruby Mower, Absolutely Cultured’s Assistant Venue Manager.
My role here requires a range of skills from physical (making stupendously good coffee) to keeping up a good work ethos and ensuring the smooth day to day running of Humber Street Gallery and its cafe/bar.
Some of the achievements I’m most proud of include volunteering for Welcome to English, a non-profit organisation which help asylum seekers and refugees along with their English skills and qualifications. Some have now left the class and managed to get housing and jobs in Hull due to the organisation’s helping hands. As well as conquering my extreme shyness in my former teen years, where I would sometimes be mute, to then becoming outspoken, talkative and confident.
One passion I have is seeing and supporting local live bands, and I’ve also recently taken up life-drawing!
