Hothouse is back for 2023 and this time we are in Hull!

Join us for a day of celebrating sustainable photography. 16 speakers will share their photographic practice in quick-fire presentations over the course of a full day. This year we are in partnership with Humber Eco Fest and Hull Independent Photography Festival. 

Throughout this event you will hear from photographers capturing climate change visually within their work to those photographers who are fostering a change in their photographic process to become more sustainable. Their lens is not limited to documenting visually but extends to the innovative strides of sustainable practices within their field, embracing climate aware photographic techniques, materials, and ethical principles in their photographic practice. They will shed a light on our planet’s fragility and resilience, inspiring action and building a stronger connection with the world we inhabit.


Reviews from audience and speakers at Newcastle Hothouse 2022:

“It made me realise just how much amazing work is happening all over the region. I came away feeling inspired to take more risks and develop my craft in unexpected ways.”

“As an autistic photo artist, it was a fantastic supportive event, sharing my work with others. Well organised and a lovely venue.”

“A critical platform to share work, with difficult questions asked in caring ways. It made me think and reflect, engaging my brain in deep thinking.”

"If you want to be inspired, challenged or provoked in your photography you need to get along to the next Hothouse event"
