Hosted by Art Hives / Les Ruches d’Art
The Art Hives Institute is a 4-day experiential intensive teaching the theory, methods and materials to create inclusive public home places which bring multiple opportunities for community building and healing through art making, dialogue and skill-sharing into neighbourhoods.
In collaboration with Agnes Etherington Art Centre at Queen’s University, this course will be offered by Dr Janis Timm-Bottos, Creative Arts Therapies professor at Concordia University and Rachel Chainey, Art Hives Network National Coordinator, in collaboration with diverse Art Hives practitioners. It is designed for professionals already working in an Art Hive setting or serious about getting started with this type of third space. While covering the theoretical underpinnings and practical aspects, it will also provide plenty of time for group discussion, skill-sharing, site visits and hands-on community art studio sessions.
No prerequisite courses are needed. Previous experience in a community art studio is preferable.
