Dismantling Monoculture: the Beehive Collective in JP (6/26)

The Jamaica Plain Forum
at First Church in Jamaica Plain UU, 6 Eliot St, Jamaica Plain, MA and

The Beehive Collective come to Jamaica Plain with their giant, portable murals that are used as a tool for popular analysis, education and organizing! The bees create collaborative, hand-illustrated posters of dizzying intricacy which are patchwork “quilts” of personal stories, historical and policy narrative, and bottom-up resistance.

In anticipation of the much-awaited “Globalization in the Western Hemisphere” triptych, we will explore the detailed and powerful messages from the Beehive Collective’s “Plan Columbia“, “The True Cost of Coal” and “Mesoamerica Resiste“.

This trilogy is an engaging venture through a larger than life versions of the Collective’s graphics using banners that dwarf the presenters and a six foot tall fabric flip-book. In a format they’ve dubbed “picture lecture,” the bees take participants through their own story before the plunge into their graphic trilogy: the Free Trade Area of the Americas, Plan Colombia, and nigh-complete Mesoamerica Resiste works are presented in sequence. The Beehive Collective heavily encourages audience participation.

The Beehive’s innovative, arts-based education strategy provokes discussion, raises hard questions, and offers a hopeful story in an era of too much bad news. Presentations consist of high energy, interactive, graphic-based picture-lectures that speak to the overwhelming and complex picture of globalization, militarization, and resource extraction, as well as the small-scale changes and actions we can undertake to build another world.
