About this event

Programming:

Saturday, October 15th, 2022, 1PM ET at Sur Gallery.

Join us on October 15, 2022, for a special workshop with Beehive Collective!

Come join us for an interactive workshop on the Mesoamerica Resiste poster. Part of a three-part trilogy depicting the struggle against corporate globalization, Mesoamerica Resiste focuses on the resistance around the mega-infrastructure projects that facilitate extraction and the neoliberal model of “development”. We will deconstruct the poster section by section, as a group, encouraging folks to jump in whenever they feel a connection with part of the poster.

ABOUT THE FACILITATOR

THE BEEHIVE COLLECTIVE is an all-volunteer, activist art collective, motivated and dedicated to “cross-pollinating the grassroots” by creating collaborative, anti-copyright images as educational and organizational tools. They work anonymously as word-to-image translators of complex global stories, gathered through conversations with affected communities. Since 2000, they have disseminated more than 150,000 posters throughout the Americas, entirely by grassroots, hand-to-hand distribution. Their graphics have tackled issues from globalization, trade, and resource extraction, to energy, biotechnology, and climate change. They strive to create holistic and accessible images that inspire critical reflection and strategic action.
