Hive Alive 2021

The Golden bee Collective (NQ) created a pop art gallery and workshop space in a disused street shopfront space on Flinders Street, Townsville as part of the Pop Up North Queensland Arts Festival organised by Umbrella Contemporary Art Studios. The Pop-up was open and active from FRI 30 JULY – SUN 8 AUGUST 2021.

Hive Alive 2021 attracted many visitors and some new members to the collective through the workshops, exhibition and multimedia components developed for and during the swarming event.

The Hive was developed and tended by Bernadette, Nina, Fairlie, James, Anneke, Rachel and Denise with participation and contributions from Malcolm Tattersall, Peter Valentine, Christine Bengoa, Jonno Stigter, Jess Begun, Skye Cutter, Sue Birch and Des, and many others.
