• New space, new (old) stuff!

    Posted on May 1, 2015 by in News


    The magpies are thrilled to announce that we have finally found a space for our community arts workshops. For the past 2 years, we’ve hosted pop-ups around East Vancouver (at Kiwassa House, Britannia, Baaad Anna’s and more) and have now partnered with “Another Space” to run our art hive (www.arthives.org) from this location.

    Another Space is a space for arts-based wellness, founded by an art therapist (our own Magpie, Sarah) and expressive arts therapist. They will feature workshops, classes, space rental, professional development and support for practitioners and therapists, as well as community events run through Magpie’s Nest. Located at 1523 E Pender, this new hub for wellness and community art needs your energy! Please contact us if you’d like to join in, or run a workshop of your own. www.anotherspace.ca and sarah@magpiesnest.ca

    As part of opening a space, we have a wish list. If any of you wonderful community members have these items or know where we could source them, they would be much appreciated:

    • Kettle, teapots, glasses/mugs
    • Small tables
    • White and natural coloured fabric/yarn (for a woven wall!)
    • Shelving/storage/pallets/handy people who can make these
    • Use of a truck to haul some furniture
    • lockers
    • old computer/tablet
    • wooden chairs (that we can paint fun colours)
    • yoga equipment (bolsters/mats/blocks)
    • sound equipment (old iPod/speakers/CD player)

    We’re so grateful to be a part of this wonderful community, and are looking forward to welcoming you all to our opening later this month, to be announced soon!
