The Hive is an independent registered charity working across Shropshire and Telford & Wrekin. The organisation has since 2005 operated a unique creative venue in Shrewsbury town center with a 100 seat performance space, music studio, media studio and gallery space.
Through its own venue activity The Hive wants to provide high quality artistic activity for local audiences and communities. It also provides a space for local community groups. In addition to venue activity, the organisation works extensively in the community. Delivering high quality arts projects for people in challenging circumstances and especially children & young people.
Film Hub NWC has previously supported The Hive with an Open Call Project but this year the Venue Support will allow them to grow and sustain family and older audiences with special needs and to reach further to their 16 -30 year old target audiences.
Through this programming they aim to build on the successes and groundwork laid by the previous project and to develop a more diverse, new curious and risk taking audience within the 16-30 year old age group.
