HOTA Housemates


One of the ways that we support artists is by providing access to short-term development space, technical support, producing advice and more to develop new work or further develop existing work. When you hear music around HOTA at odd times you know that creatives are bringing new ideas to life.

Kayah Guenther with Philip Channells, Stone/Castro, Lewis Major, Gavin Webber – Tall Man
