The Beehive Design Collective, a volunteer driven political arts organization from Eastern Maine, has highlighted important issues of our time by bridging the voices, ideas, and words of activists into art that inspires, educates, and creates buzz. We’ve loved the times that members of the Beehive Collective have visited Black Sheep Books and other places in Vermont to share their work – most recently with The True Cost of Coal.
In May, BSB has invited the Bees to come talk about how their hive operates as a model for community participation in a small, rural town. While the main hive is rooted in rural Eastern Maine, they operate as a decentralized swarm with autonomous cells throughout the Americas. We’ll talk about the different distinguishing points of the Bees rise in their community and ways in which they raise attention through solidarity organizing in rural areas.
As Vermont faces similar challenges to collective organizing in rural areas, we have a lot to learn from our brother and sister Bees. Please join us for a look inside the Hive.
