Beehive Collective swarming Eureka!!
Dear friends at the People Project and PARC,
I’m writing on behalf of the Beehive collective, an all-volunteer collective of artists, activists, and educators. We create large scale graphics campaigns to raise awareness and mobilize communities around social justice issues. Right now, a group of Bees is on a bicycle tour down the West coast with our new graphic, The True Cost of Coal. We use a giant, portable fabric mural to tell the story of climate change and mountaintop removal coal mining and how they’re connected with larger systems of oppression.
One big piece of the project and the mural is about what it means to be able to call a place home, and the dynamics that create displacement and houselessness historically and today. It sounds like you all are doing some really inspiring work around community solidarity and power, and we’d love to put together a community presentation about the work we’re doing and how it all connects.
