The Hive – A community centre shaped for (and by) people

The-Hive-photographs-Dalston-LondonYesterday we’ve been to the opening of a new community centre, the Hive in Dalston.
It’s not a new place, ’cause the building was already there, but it’s a brand new concept based on freedom and sharing. For the next two weeks everyone can exhibit works and projects, and I’m not only talking about artists and performers but it’s also opened to people seeking a place for collaborations and creativity.

The aim of the project is to create in fact a collaboration between artists and the audience, involving people with different backgrounds but linked by the same topic: Freedom.
It’s a concept we’re trying to create also through This is Not Art, ’cause we think that art and creativity are part of our human being, and not only our physical body but also our creative side needs to be nourished.

So, coming back to The Hive, there are several exhibitions and a stage where every Thursday and Saturday people perform and play, exchanging ideas and experiences. I think that in London it’s something really missing, and I’m not only talking about the place, but also about the lack of genuine opportunities to meet other people, exchanging ideas without being worried about money.
Don’t lose this opportunity, go & have a look!

Marco-sprigens-the-hiveIeri siamo andati all’apertura di un nuovo spazio comunitario, the Hive a Dalton. Non e’ propriamente un posto nuovo, poiché lo spazio viene usato anche per altre manifestazioni, tuttavia si tratta di un nuovo utilizzo basato sulla libertà e sulla condivisione. Nelle prossime due settimane infatti, chiunque potrà esibire le proprie opere e progetti e non solamente artisti o performer ma chiunque interessato a collaborazioni e creatività.

Lo scopo del progetto e’ infatti quello di creare una collaborazione tra artisti e audience, mettendo in contatto persone con esperienze diverse ma legate da uno stesso argomento: la libertà.
Ed e’ in pratica anche il concetto che stiamo cercando di diffondere attraverso il nostro blog, dato che crediamo che arte e creatività non siano esclusive di un artista, ma che sia parte del nostro essere umani, e la nostra parte creativa ha bisogno di essere nutrita, non solo il nostro corpo.

Quindi, tornando al The Hive, ci sono alcune mostre ed un palco dove ogni giovedi’ e sabato chiunque puo’ fare performance o suonare, condividendo idee ed esperienze. E credo sia qualcosa che in questa citta’ manca I think that in London, ma non parlo solo di spazi, ma soprattutto della mancanza di autentici scambi di idee ed esperienze basate sull’incontro con altre persone, senza che i soldi siano la parte più’ importante.
