Hothouse is our annual event celebrating new photography with short presentations from photographers about their recent work. We would love to hear from anyone who wants to share what they have been working on, whether it is a work-in-progress or snapshot of a completed project. We are open to any and all types of photography and aim to present a wide range of projects that show the breadth of talent of the photographic community.

Archiving Through Change

13 November 2020, 13:15 to 14:15

Originally envisaged as a physical exchange between UK and Hong Kong visual arts networks, Peer to Peer has responded to the Covid-19 pandemic to become an online space where meaningful exchange can happen and partnerships and relationships can be forged. This panel discusses the changing role of archives, comparing the approaches in Hong Kong and the UK, and considers what the archives and collections of the future might look like.

Nilupa Yasmin is an artist and educator known for her beautiful, intricately constructed artworks and large-scale installations. The weaving of photographs is core to her practice, and in this workshop she will talk through her use of the process and how it shaped her work, followed by a demonstration of the weaving technique.

Student and graduation panel session: Where now?

Paul Herrmann and a group of mentors from across the image-making industry will come together to give quick-fire advice to those who have just graduated (or who are still studying) and are wondering what options there are to progress their careers in light of the recent global upheaval. The panellists will invite their audience to think creatively and adapt their mindset to a working environment that while challenging, could also offer some very different opportunities.

Getting Your Ducks in a Row

15 September 2020, 18:00 to 19:15

Getting the business side of your practice organised is one of those tasks that always seems to slip down the to-do list. But not doing so, and not following up when your work gets misused, can be costly. Has your work ever been reproduced without your permission? Or has a client ever made more of your work than was agreed? And why when challenged do so many people say 'But it's only a photo'? This event will give you the skills and knowledge to understand when and how to push back and demand fair payment for your images.
