  • Le Guide Pratique des Ruches d'Art a été créé en réponse a un besoin exprimé par plusieurs membres de la communauté qui partagent un désir de se regrouper pour répondre de façon créative aux enjeux auxquels fait face leur milieu de vie, et se demandent par où commencer. L’information que nous avons recueillie ici ne se veut pas un livre de recettes définitif, mais nous espérons qu’en rendant disponibles nos apprentissages jusqu’à ce jour, nous pourrons vous soutenir sur votre parcours vers la création d’une Ruche d’Art au sein de votre communauté.

  • The Art Hives How-to-Guide was created to address a need expressed by many community members who share a desire to regroup to respond creatively to issues in their communities, and are wondering “How do we begin?” The information we have gathered here is not a definitive recipe book, but we hope that by making what we’ve learned so far, readily available in an open source format, we can help make your Art Hive journey just a little bit easier. We want to support those of you who are inspired by the Art Hives model in making it your own.

  • The Recent History of Art Hives from Art Hives on Vimeo.

  • 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.

  • New York! The city of food, architecture, art, straight-talking people, non-stop walking, The High Line, jazz, Broadway, the five boroughs…And a city that takes its notions of community very seriously.

  • The Policies and Procedures orginally written for the Art Street in 1998. Please extract and share as you wish to support your Art Hive.

  • At our Art Hives Symposium in June, we were all asked if there was anything we would like to share from our experience of setting up small site of community engaged art making.

    I thought about what I could share after years of helping Janis start community studios (aka Art Hives) in various locations across the country. Every space requires a different set of parameters but how each space is set up has a major impact on what art is made there. For example, a carpeted space will not invite messy painting to occur or a dimly lit space will not welcome small scissor cutting.

  • This film offers historical footage and contemporary interviews describing an amazing time in the history of Spain (1934-1936) when university students traveled across the country to deliver cultural experiences of music, drama, and the visual arts to people who lived in isolated rural communities. The people interviewed are the students, now elderly, who share how this experience affected their lives.
