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. Every community is complex with special strengths and challenges and every Art Hive should equally reflect the unique issues being tackled, as well as the traditions being celebrated.

This guide was made possible through the generous support of the JW McConnell Family Foundation and Concordia University in Montreal.
