Who are we?

The Concordia University Art Hive (Downtown Campus), facilitated by Creative Arts Therapists and students, welcomes the Concordia community and the general public for free and open art making. No experience required.

Join us for self-care, skill-sharing and community building!



The CU Art Hives will be temporarily closed starting April 27th, 2024. We regret to inform you that we do not have a definitive timeline for reopening at this point.

Si les bibliothèques sont des lieux de diffusion de la culture, les Ruches d’art, soit des ateliers artistiques communautaires ouverts à tous, entendent devenir des lieux de création culturelle aussi répandus. L’atelier « Les Ruches d’art : inclusion sociale par les arts », donné le 6 juin prochain, souhaite démocratiser la création d’une telle initiative inclusive dans son quartier.

Leo and I recently joined 500 other participants, mainly academics, at the 15th Annual Engagement Scholarship Consortium conference hosted by the University of Alberta at the Edmonton Shaw Conference Centre (October 6-8, 2014). We were fortunate to have a strong local team that took on the design, set-up, and facilitation of a pop-up art hive for the two-day conference.
