“The young people at our school lack creative opportunities in their everyday life. We aim to fill that gap through our commitment to humanities and the arts.

Rarely does an opportunity such as Hothouse come along. It was inspiring to not only be offered this opportunity for free but also to see how genuine the offer was and how creative and inspiring the teachers were. Their enthusiasm and obvious professional experience meant the young people felt comfortable in their presence and therefore able to ask them questions about the creative industries and how they might jump start their own.

I too was encouraged to join the session at various times and as such I felt that my professional development also improved. It also meant I got to experience a number of exercises that I can reinterpret and use back in our school ensuring Hothouse can continue back in school.”
