Hive Vancouver

hivevan.org

The Hive Vancouver Learning Community was established in 2014 as a collaboration between the Vancouver Public Library, the Museum of Vancouver, Open Media, the Vancouver Maker Foundation, Vancouver Community Laboratory, Mozilla Webmaker and other local organizations working to enrich digital learning opportunities in the Greater Vancouver region. This effort brings together educators, technologists, mentors and institutions to design innovative, self-led digital learning experiences for youth and marginalized groups. Through free hands-on events, resources and programmes, the community aims to enrich the local ecosystem of digital opportunities to help Vancouverites develop key 21st-century skills, together.

The Museum of Vancouver (MOV) creates Vancouver-focused exhibitions and programs that encourage dynamic conversations about what was, is, and can be Vancouver. Permanent exhibitions tell the city’s stories from the early 1900s to the late 1970s and are complemented by contemporary, groundbreaking feature exhibits.

Since its rebranding in 2009 the MOV has become a leader in the reimagining of museums. Our exhibitions are Vancouver centric and designed to make the viewer think not just about the objects, but their greater context. We've played host to two Venice Biennale in Architecture projects. We've even gone so far as to hire a Curator of Contemporary Issues. We are a bold, contemporary museum, and we can't wait for you to visit.

The Vancouver Community Lab is an open and accessible workshop where makers, hackers, artists and tinkerers can create, destroy and re-build. We believe that everyone has the desire and ability to create things and can be trusted to develop the skills needed to do so. CoLab members work on personal, group or community projects. Funding to pay for our space, tools and consumables comes primarily from membership dues.
