“Interviewed Maya Goodwill, the Marketing and Events Coordinator of the Hive Vancouver. Here are some excerpts:
How did the HiVe start and what is the philosophy of the organization?
The idea for the HiVE came out of a Vancouver Design Nerd Jam, where participants saw a connection between the lack of support for social impact organizations, the need for increased social cohesion and collaboration within the sector, and the frustration and feeling of isolation that many small organizations, entrepreneurs and freelancers experience working alone. The HiVE was created to address these issues, ultimately using a vision of shared space in order to better support and connect Vancouver’s change-makers.”
