Hothouse is on the road again – this time arriving at Tullie House in Carlisle. Redeye is partnering up with Carlisle Photo Festival to bring you a day of presentations from the region’s most promising new creative talent, alongside a hub of photographic activity.

What is Hothouse?
Hothouse is a day-long event where photographers are invited to give short presentations on a recent project. Each talk is 10-15 minutes long, in blocks of three or four talks, and visitors are welcome to drop in for as much or little of the day as they like. Alongside the presenations, there will be opportunity to meet with the photographers and fellow attendees.

There will also be a chance to look through portfolios and photobooks on the day, and we encourage you to bring along your own work to show to others. 

Previous Hothouse events have taken place in LiverpoolManchester and Bradford and we're delighted to be teaming up with Carlisle Photo Festival to bring the event to Carlisle.
