About Hive

Hive Video
This video shows some of the work we do at Hive within the Shipley centre, on outreach projects and participants who take part in our activities. The short film was created by Danny Hardaker and a group of Hive volunteers.

Hive has worked for 35 years to promote and deliver creative activities as a method of engaging with and providing personal and social development for the wide range of communities living in Bradford. We have achieved this through a combination of large projects, commissioned community activities, courses and Drop-in opportunities.

Hive is a Registered Charity and a Company Limited by Guarantee run by a voluntary and user led committee. We have 9 members of staff and employ a variety of artist practitioners and tutors to deliver our range of activities and classes.
