Graphic Workshops and Picture-Lectures:
“There’s something about illustrations that teaches more than words…” - student at Garfield High School, Seattle, WA
The Bees have spent 10 years developing an innovative and story-based education strategy that we share through a variety of interactive, image-based picture-lectures and graphic workshops. We believe that art is a tool for popular analysis, education and organizing- and that the complex and overwhelming issues that face our world can be broken down and understood in simple pictures.
In our workshops and presentations, we use giant, portable murals to deconstruct issues as far-reaching as globalization, climate change, colonization and resource extraction. We strive to provoke discussion, raise hard questions, and share hopeful stories about the small-scale changes and actions we can undertake to build a better world.
Our current workshops and presentations include:
The True Costs of Coal
Tales of Ants & Economies in the Americas
Celebrating Resistance to Plan Puebla Panama
Collaborative Graphic Design for Movement Building
