Part of the Patty Disney Center for Life and Work at CalArts, the HIVE (Hybrid Incubator for Visionary Entrepreneurs), presents workshops that are open to the community—providing creatives in all fields with the ability to build their entrepreneurial tool kits. The HIVE is designed to give CalArts students and alumni access to business and design thinking skills, while allowing them to work on an innovative idea, product, project, or business.
California Institute of the Arts (CalArts) has set the pace for educating professional artists since 1970. Offering rigorous undergraduate and graduate degree programs through six schools—Art, Critical Studies, Dance, Film/Video, Music, and Theater—CalArts has championed creative excellence, critical reflection, and the development of new forms and expressions. As successive generations of faculty and alumni have helped shape the landscape of contemporary arts, the Institute first envisioned by Walt Disney encompasses a vibrant, eclectic community with global reach, inviting experimentation, independent inquiry, and active collaboration and exchange among artists, artistic disciplines and cultural traditions.
