TALES OF ANTS AND ECONOMICS IN THE AMERICAS

The Beehive Collective (http://www.beehivecollective.org) is a political
graphics workshop based in Maine, known for creating accessible,
powerful imagery to explain important issues of our time. Since 2001,
the Bees have been working on a trilogy of posters on corporate
globalization. Parts one and two dealt with the proposed FTAA trade
agreement and Plan Colombia; the third poster, currently in progress,
focuses on Plan Puebla-Panama (PPP), a mega-infrastructure development
project for southern Mexico and Central America designed to facilitate
corporate exploitation of the region, paving the way for the Free Trade
Area of the Americas.

With their presentation "Dismantling Monoculture: Tale of Ants and
Economics in the Americas," the Bees will use three giant illustrated
portable murals, a slideshow, and an engaging narrative to take us on an
interactive visual tour of the connections between colonization,
militarization, and resource extraction in the Americas.

It's a picture-lecture to be understood by *anyone* - not just the
experts and political analysts JOIN IN as we de-construct the complex
and overwhelming issues that are shaping our world, using
bio-regionally accurate depictions of animals and insects as
metaphors to link cultural and ecological diversity.
