Some quotes from artists who undertook the first Electric Greenhouse residency:

'As the residency went on and I learnt more I could see.. possibilities for new ways of working.' 'It was fantastic to have sustained focused time to develop my work - it just went too quickly!' ‘Definitely (acquired useful skills), especially … technical skills and the discipline to develop a project in a short time…’ 'It was great to have time and a really good level of support and the facilities were far better than I thought they would be.'
