The chief executive of a new £50m Black Country arts centre which has gone into administration has been made redundant.
Work has halted on The Public building in West Bromwich
Sylvia King was part of the team which first put forward plans for The Public in West Bromwich 12 years ago.
In March administrators PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) were brought in to help save the centre but eight jobs were cut at the month's end.
PwC said a further 14 job losses were regrettable but were part of the reorganisation of the charity.
It hopes it will preserve the centre's on-going viability.
PwC said it could not support the previous levels of employment and now hopes to be able to deliver a successful business model for the charity.
