The KickArts Shop and office is temporarily located in the School of Arts precinct on Lake Street until 1 June 2019. During this time KickArts is activating a new space two doors down to deliver weekly activities. The Hive takes its name from the retailers and artisans that worked in these spaces to produce and sell handmade items in the early days of Cairns. The BeeHive Cafe and Beehive BootShop operated on this strip from 1920 to 1960.
