Open Hours:

The Hive’s Sound Box “open“ hours are for students who have gone through the necessary training via our Skill Shares and/or Proctored Hours and have proven their knowledge of the methods and procedures dictated by the Sound Box.

During open hours students are able to work on their projects without proctored supervision for certain blocks of time. Students are allowed to reserve the space in 30 minute time blocks. These students are responsible for leaving the Sound Box in a condition better than they found it.

Soundbox reservation times are default open sessions (people who want to come in and create are welcome to do so). If you would like a private session, please indicate that in your description.
