Saturday October 11

2:00pm-6:00pm

Free admission- all are welcome!

Bees experienced in creating and sharing story-telling art pieces used to “cross-pollinate the grassroots” will run a workshop sharing techniques they use to create their images depicting today’s greatest challenges and inspiring all of us to work for change.

The Beehive is an all-volunteer swarm of educators, artists, and activists using images to communicate and educate about the complex realities of our times. The dizzyingly detailed, hand-drawn, large-format posters and banners are portable murals that come alive through storytelling, illuminating how single issues are interconnected and part of bigger systems. Join us to work with the Bees to deconstruct some often overwhelming global issues – together – and use metaphors from the natural world to connect social and environmental struggles. The collaboratively produced, educational illustrations were created through an intensive and ongoing process of grassroots research. After graphics are completed, Bees tour all of the world to distribute the completed graphics widely as tools for storytelling, popular education, organizing, and movement building.
