March 27 & 28, 2018

The McGill Art Hive Initiative is a gathering place, a simple space for making art. Participation requires no art background or experience. It is a space where conversation, getting to know fellow artists, and creating community can accompany the process of making art. It affords members of the McGill community the opportunity to step out of their daily challenges, spend time in a very different place, and to return to their work feeling more relaxed and focused.

We at the Art Hive believe it is important to be mindful of the need to disconnect from stress, and to “reconnect” with others. MAHI aims to achieve this by utilizing creative experiences to foster a sense of togetherness along with individual well-being.

The MAHI would like to collaborate in the EGSS Conference 2018 by hosting and facilitating creative communities for wellness in the Faculty of Education, through the following activities:

  • MAHI ongoing open studio during conference (including a final exhibit in the lobby, during the Conference’s closing wine & cheese)
  • Art workshops for wellness
  • Panel: A growing community of artists-in-residence: New conversations for social, artistic and pedagogical exploration in a faculty of education
