Art Hives | QC | 2015
Janis Timm-Bottos, Rachel Chainey

“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 generous support of the JW McConnell Family Foundation and Concordia University in Montreal.

The Art Hives How-to-Guide is now available as a FREE downloadable PDF: http://arthives.org/resources/art-hives-how-guide

Guide Pratique des Ruches d’Art
Les Ruches d’Art | QC | 2015
Janis Timm-Bottos, Rachel Chainey

“Le Guide Pratique des Ruches d’Art a été créé en réponse a un besoin exprimé par plusieurs membres de la communauté qui partagent un désir de se regrouper pour répondre de façon créative aux enjeux auxquels fait face leur milieu de vie, et se demandent par où commencer. L’information que nous avons recueillie ici ne se veut pas un livre de recettes définitif, mais nous espérons qu’en rendant disponibles nos apprentissages jusqu’à ce jour, nous pourrons vous soutenir sur votre parcours vers la création d’une Ruche d’Art au sein de votre communauté. Nous voulons épauler les personnes parmi vous qui se sentent inspirées par le modèle des Ruches d’Art et les aider à se l’approprier et à l’adapter à leur réalité. Chaque communauté est complexe et comporte ses forces et ses défis bien particuliers, et chaque Ruche d’Art devrait réfléter de façon tout aussi unique les enjeux auxquels elle fait face et les traditions qui y sont célébrées.”

ArtBridges Tips & Tools Series: DAREarts Practical Guide for Artists Visiting Remote FNMI Communities

First Roots Aboriginal logo

What are the responsibilities of artists as guests in communities that are not their own? What can guest artists do to prepare for and to be respectful of this role? For our new ArtBridges Tips & Tools series, we asked DAREarts First Roots Program Associate, Cathy Elliott, to share some tips with artists who are new to working in First Nations, Metis and Inuit communities.

Cathy, a member of Sipekne’katik, Nova Scotia, has been working with DAREarts in Indigenous communities for eight years. She and DAREarts have lots of helpful info to share. Check out the DAREarts Practical Guide for Artists Visiting Remote FNMI* Communities for advice about travel, infrastructure, supplies, cultural context, and long term resonance. Thank you to Cathy and DAREarts for sharing your insights with us!

When you go into an Aboriginal Community, you’re collaborating with that community to celebrate, to nurture its own Culture and language, to help heal. When you step off a plane or train or car onto a reserve, you are essentially stepping into another Nation. You are the outsider here. You have to behave in an open, respectful way just as you would if you were visiting any new country. There are customs, histories, languages and belief systems to respect and consider. 

We all have a responsibility to educate ourselves in the histories of Indigenous Peoples. Not all First Nations are alike. Read the Truth and Reconciliation (TRC) Report. It’s online. You really should know what has caused the inter-generational trauma that still affects many children and Elders you’ll meet.”

Community-Engaged Arts Practice: Community Support and Collaboration Strategies for Seniors | Featured Resource

Arts and Health Project - Peer Support and Collaboration Strategies for Seniors

The ArtBridges Resource Portal connects you to community arts toolkits and research, reflections and stories, program ideas, and more. These resources have been developed and generously shared by artists and cultural workers in Canada through the course of their work.

Artists often develop their own tools and approaches depending on the type of work they do with communities. Through decades of community arts projects, Claire Robson has amassed knowledge, skills, and techniques that could benefit other artists who are just starting out. Community-Engaged Arts Practice: A guide to creating community support and collaboration strategies for seniors is the result of a recent collaboration between Robson and Arts & Health Project. This detailed guide starts off with a basic outline of the dynamics present in a community project, and then explores important elements of designing projects that involve elder artists.

This guide stands out from others because it is written from the perspective of a lead artist, and is rooted in the artists’ experience. It is an engaging mix of tips, reflections, stories, and actual tools, including worksheets and that can be used in a program. It also contains some great advice on communication, peer support, and honouring the wisdom that elder artists bring.  This guide is well thought out, contains helpful details, and is recommended reading for any artists whose community projects involve work with elders.
