  • In Albuquerque, New Mexico, Janis Timm-Bottos co-created a studio space for the community with artists who were homeless. ''I have been involved over the years with developing different models for creating small and sustained spaces and communities so that people can come together across sometimes pretty big divides and have a safe space to have conversation and make art together.'' Later, working at Concordia University, she made a similar space with her students, which they eventually developed into a global network.

    It’s a place where your inner artist is welcomed— a community studio that harnesses and promotes inclusion, respect, and learning.

    It’s called an art hive, and there are hundreds of them throughout Canada and across the globe. There’s no formal instruction, no admission fee, and no requirements to participate. It’s a community studio that provides people the opportunity to explore myriad creative outlets at their own leisure.

  • We were so lucky to welcome Janis to the West Coast this past week. We shared food, ideas, stories, and gained lots of valuable insight and support from someone who has been a huge inspiration to our work. Reflecting on that visit, and the impact it's had on so many people in our community, we wanted to offer some photos and share what's happening in our Vancouver Art Hives community. The Magpies were happy to meet with Janis and introduce her to our new board members, show her our new space, and attend talks at Groundswell Economics Alternatives and Adler University.
