Join us April 8, 2023 at 10 am for a hands-on workshop with the Beehive Collective.
This program is free; all are welcome.
Pre-register for this event here.
In this interactive workshop, participants will explore the Beehive Collective’s Mesoamerica Resiste! poster.
Part of a three-part trilogy depicting the struggle against corporate globalization, Mesoamerica Resiste! focuses on the resistance to mega-infrastructure projects that facilitate extraction and the neoliberal model of “development.” Workshop participants will deconstruct the poster section by section, and be encouraged to jump in whenever they feel a connection.
This program is presented as part of the exhibition The People United, curated by Tamara Toledo.
THE BEEHIVE COLLECTIVE is an all-volunteer, activist art collective, motivated, and dedicated to “cross-pollinating the grassroots” by creating collaborative, anti-copyright images as educational and organizational tools. They work anonymously as word-to-image translators of complex global stories, gathered through conversations with affected communities. Since 2000, they have disseminated more than 150,000 posters throughout the Americas, entirely by grassroots, hand-to-hand distribution. Their graphics have tackled issues from globalization, trade, and resource extraction, to energy, biotechnology, and climate change. They strive to create holistic and accessible images that inspire critical reflection and strategic action.
