The Beehive Design Collective is a wildly motivated, all-volunteer, activist arts collective dedicated to “cross-pollinating the grassroots” by creating collaborative, anti-copyright images for use as educational and organizing They work as word-to-image translators of complex global stories, shared with them through conversations with affected communities.
With giant portable murals and an engaging narrative, the Bees take audiences on an interactive visual tour of the connections between colonization, militarization, and resource extraction. The Bees have spent over ten years developing an innovative and story-based education strategy that we share through a variety of interactive, image-based presentations and workshops.
The Dismantling Monoculture picture-lecture weaves together images and stories from the past 10+ years of their work, featuring the Beehive’s trilogy about globalization in the Americas: the Free Trade Area of the Americas, Plan Colombia, and Mesoamérica Resiste graphics campaigns.
