    Canadian First: Concordia opens campus art hive and International Network Headquarters

  • From October 28th-30th a hundred community members and inter-sector organizations gathered at Moun Saint Vincent University and the Halifax Central Library to explore what is happening in community engaged arts in Nova Scotia, how we can connect to the international Art Hives movement, and what are the opportunities to use Art Hives in Nova Scotia to sustain and grow our communities and economy.

    This document is an attempt to capture three days of great connections, action planning and creative ideas for making positive community change through the arts!

  • The Science Shop is Art Hives Network’s new initiative in collaboration with Vanier College and Concordia’s office of the VP, graduate and research department. The aim of these public science events is engage the community in public conversations about the intersection between science and creativity. Taking place in the community art studio La Ruche d’Art, a life sized cabinet of curiosities packed with art supplies, a multitude of art made by community members and a whole host of odds and ends, one may think it an odd place to be discussing molecules and mutations, among others.

  • Art Hives Conversation/Workshop - April 22nd 2015

  • The model and practice of Art Hives have evolved through two decades of sustained practice research, continuous observation and adaptation, and experimentation with spaces and organizational structures led by Dr. Janis Timm-Bottos, who has developed and established six successful art hives in different locations across North America.
