The Bees are back on tour with their giant, portable murals! Beehive Design Collective’s graphics aim to draw out the connections between colonial history and present day struggles against corporate globalization, violence, and racism. The Beehive creates anti-copyright graphics as tools for popular analysis, education, and organizing. Their presentations and workshops offer an accessible format for unpacking the ways in which resource extraction, militarization, and industrial development in the Western Hemisphere are all interconnected in the same ‘big picture.’
This presentation will highlight the Ríos Vivos Movement of Colombia, the social movement of dam-impacted communities, and the work of the Beehive’s Polinizaciones Process process that collaborates with communities impacted by resource extraction in the use of arts, culture, and communications as strategies for land defense. It will feature a Beehive graphic of Mesoamérica Resiste, accompanied by photographs, short films, personal experiences, and stories about the communities in resistance we have been weaving relationships of mutual aid with over the last eight years in Colombia.
