Previous Hothouse sessions have prompted people to say:

"I will feel the ripples of Hothouse for a while - inspiration, reflection, exploration."

"Stimulating, thought-provoking, challenging and inspiring. I really did enjoy it."

"Well organised, good mix of photographers at various stages of their careers, good mix of approaches to work, short talks and presentations, so no time to get bored!"
