The Story Behind The Hive (EFA Project Space Director Michelle Levy Explains)

The Hive initiative evolved out of an event series at EFA called the Artist/Organizer series. The basic aim was to support activities by artists who re-shape the framework for engaging with artistic practices by orchestrating experiences that invite participation through interaction and services and extend to different audiences. Originally, specific artist-organizers were invited by EFA to conceive of a project that would be realized on our premises- a slow process that could take up to two years at times just in planning. We eventually decided to expand possibilities through an open call: the open call would raise the visibility of such practices, encourage artists who may already have something in process, and introduce us to those from other communities we may not be exposed to. This was when we started speaking to A Blade of Grass (ABOG). ABOG is an essential new New York City based organization- a funder and champion of socially engaged art practices, and we found a synergy here between our two organizations’ goals.  We partnered with ABOG on this next stage of the initiative. The two orgs put our heads together to come up with a clear concept, named it The Hive, and announced a request for proposals in late 2012.
