Come to an art hive in the Library

Art hive


Art Hives are public spaces for people to gather and make art; to connect and engage.  Libraries are places to explore ideas; to converge and learn.  Join us at a library in St. John’s to explore, create art, and make community connections. All ages, all genders welcome. For information on an Art Hive, please contact the Library where it will be happening:

Memorial University’s Faculty of Education in collaboration with Memorial University Libraries and the Newfoundland & Labrador Public Libraries invite you to take part in the research project Libraries as Public “Home Spaces”: Engaging with Multiple Literacies through Community Pop-Up Art Hives. After participating in an Art Hive a researcher will ask if you are interested in filling out a feedback survey and/or having your artwork photographed for research purposes. Participation in the art hive and the research will take no more than 2 hours. Completing the feedback survey will take approximately 15 minutes.
