The McGill Art Hive 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 utilising creative experiences to foster a sense of togetherness along with individual well-being.
