Welcome to the Hive!

The Rick and Susan Sontag Center for Collaborative Creativity (aka the Hive) is a design center serving the students, staff and faculty of the Claremont Colleges.

We believe everyone has tremendous untapped creative potential, and it’s our job as designers, researchers, and educators to help develop creativity and confidence.

We believe collaborative and interdisciplinary experiences are necessary to develop better problem finders (and solvers) to address the world’s problems, and we believe the best way to apply this approach is in the liberal arts.

We play, experiment, fail, and learn from that failure; we are building our creative confidence.
