The McGill Art Hive Initiative (MAHI) was launched on November 28, 2017. The launch, which attracted more than 100 people, drew together faculty members and students from the Faculty of Nursing, Communications, Education, Anthropology, Architecture, Philosophy, Art Therapy and the Institute for Gender, Sexuality and Feminist Studies. Supporters of creative arts therapies, along with artists, art educators and colleagues from the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts also joined us. In the time that the MAHI has been running, it has collaborated with more than twenty units, student societies and creative initiatives on campus, making community and promoting well-being through the arts.
The McGill Art Hive is principally an Open Studio, aiming also at:
_Working together with diverse McGill units
_Encouraging creative collaboration and participation
_Supporting teaching and learning through the arts
_Developing community initiatives
_Participating in creative research practices
_Organizing exhibitions, performances and other art events
_Recycling and Reusing materials and supplies
The MAHI Team is composed by Dr. Claudia Mitchell (Director), Dr. Maria Ezcurra (Art Facilitator) and Sadaf Farookhi (Coordinator).
