Collaborative Art Workshop & Presentation w/ the Beehive Collective

Aug 31 2010 - 2:00pm - 6:00pm

Join us and the Beehive Collective ( for an afternoon of collaborative creative process and cross-pollination.

To begin, the Bees will lead us through their method of designing and creating large-scale collaborative murals which illustrate complex, interconnected concepts through the use of metaphor-rich imagery and visual narrative.  We will focus our collective creative attention on developing ideas and images for TLC Farm's educational land signs, working with concepts of social permaculture, decolonization, bioregionalism, watershed health, TLC Farm's educational programming, intentional community and more!  This will be a participatory, co-created artistic process - please come even if you've never before been here or thought much about any of this.

Afterwards, the Bees will present their newest mural, The True Cost of Coal, which tells the story of the devastating ecological effects of mountain top removal coal mining in Appalachia and the grassroots resistance that is flourishing in the region.

We will be running a shuttle from People's Coop (SE 21st and Tibbetts), meeting at 1:15 and leaving by 1:30. The shuttle will return to People's by 6:45.   This workshop is a by-donation event, with no one turned away for lack of funds.  Please RSVP to so we can know about how many folk to expect.  We look forward to seeing you!
