The Beehive Collective is a group of artists, storytellers and activists based out of Maine. The Bees have spent 10 years developing an innovative and story-based education strategy that they share through a variety of interactive, image-based picture-lectures and graphic workshops. They 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 their workshops and presentations, they use giant, portable murals to deconstruct issues as far-reaching as globalization, climate change, colonization and resource extraction. They 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.
