Artist Hive is all about linking our hive of qualified, creative contractors, arts workers and established artists to the people who need them.
A creative consultancy, we offer professional services to corporate, council, media, education and business peeps who need art solutions. We design, manage and implement all kinds of one-off and ongoing art projects, and our friendly and professional team links our ace artists to the right project to provide industry solutions (and very stunning artwork).
Some of our projects include art workshop facilitation, commercial mural production, fine art agency, exhibition and creative event management. Arts funding consultation, creative policy and cultural development, decor and display, as well as promotions and community engagement solutions, as well as ongoing work at charity and community events. We do all kinds of things, all kinds of places. [we specialise in one of custom designed signature events]

If you're an artist, it's a great way to get your art out there, meet other artists, and collaborate. We're always looking for new artists to join our network of independent creative industry contractors (but that's quite a mouthful. We just call it our hive.) If you're interested, click here.
Our origins lie in our Collective action project ‘CBD Gallery’(CBD, 2005-8) which our group of artists founded in Brisbane’s CBD, which hosted scores of large experimental art exhibitions, events and collaborations. This group transmuted into our Artist run Initiative, ‘Brisbane Local Arts Collective’ (BLAC, 2008-12) when we moved from our gallery space. Under this banner we designed, initiated and produced dozens of community engagement public art works for Council, Corporate and local culture sector businesses, including and combining chalk, mural and workshop projects.
These two groups have been remodeled and rebranded as the ‘Artist Hive’ (EST 2012) This is a membership based business model designed to create opportunities, incomes, and career development for its member artists.
