  • 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.

  • 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.

  • During the 2014 Art Hive Symposium we used Open Space Technology (openspaceworld.org) so participants could focus on what really matters to them. Here is an overview of the process we used and the main points as harvested by participants.  Compiled by Elizabeth Hunt and Ezra Bridgman (percolab) from the notes of participants at the 2014 Art Hive Symposium.

  • During the 2014 Art Hive Symposium we asked pre-selected storytellers to respond to this invitation: We would like your story about participating, running, supporting, or dreaming of an art hive. Not a presentation – really just a story inspired by art hives.

  • Transforming neighbourhoods through Art Hives

    The Art Hive Symposium

    Three days to explore, learn, reflect, and co-design possibilities for the dissemination of arts-based social inclusion projects across Canada.

     

    During the symposium, participants will have the opportunity to visit and make art in Montreal’s art hives, learn about the practice and model, as well as draw on their experience and expertise to collectively imagine how the model can be replicated or adapted within their own communities.
