The Hive is a new concept, which creates a co-working space open to all community organisations. The Hive was designed to fill in the gap in the shared spaces community. Shared spaces are becoming more and more popular, and new ones are regularly created. However, many are not accessible to community groups due to costs and locations. The Hive is based on the same concept but targets our community organisations waiting for leases and other small groups making great impacts in our communities.

The Hive is equipped with desks and wifi, all you need is your laptop. We also have televisions available for presentations. This is currently a trial, so we’re interested in your feedback. Please email Kurt.Timmins@aucklandcouncil.govt.nz if you’ve got any suggestions.

Using the Hive

The Hive is equipped with desks and wifi, all you need is your laptop. We also have televisions available for presentations. Always book an appointment on http://thehiveryz.simplybook.me to make sure you have a spot! 

These are a shared resource.  Please keep the space clean and tidy, and leave them in a way that you would like to find them.
 
And, really importantly, when you arrive at The Hive introduce yourself to the other people using the space - this is a great way to get to know people across sectors.
