One of the great drivers of the Art Hives Movement is a commitment to the creative reuse of resources. The artistic potential of recycled material was explored via a Recycled Art Workshop on Dec 6th in the Lobby of the Education Building. The workshop also marked the start of the MAHI’s recycling campaign for the coming year.
Special collection boxes have been placed at the 1st and 2nd floor entrances of the Faculty of Education, as well as at the entrance of the Art Hive itself in the Curriculum Resources Centre.
