We are very lucky that The Beehive Design Collective has agreed to come to Sacramento on October 28th to present their anti-copyright graphic campaign: “MesoAmerica Resiste”, the third in their trilogy about corporate globalization in the western hemisphere.
The Beehive Design Collective combines poignant messaging with beautiful artwork based on extensive interviews and research. Their graphic campaign presentations engage participants in ways that mediums limited to just art or just politics can not. One of their newest campaign takes on coal with their "True Cost of Coal" banner. Check out their different art work at:
The workshop will be fun, free (though donation's encouraged), educational, and engaging. Come grab something edible at Luna’s Café (whom we are grateful are hosting), and enjoy.
"The work of the Beehive Collective goes far beyond the traditional understanding of Solidarity. It is actively fostering equal exchanges and relationship building between communities that are involved in the same struggle for justice and democracy throughout the Western Hemisphere. Their open and inclusive process and the incorporation of Latin American mythology into their work transcends borders and language barriers. The Beehive collective breaks away from traditional forms of education. Their art forces the viewer to interact and participate within the graphic, making it a vital popular education tool where people learn about the reality of Plan Colombia, the Free Trade Area of the Americas, etc. The Beehive collective are pioneers and their work is telling and effective."
