Join the Beehive Collective for a visual workshop on "The True Cost of Coal."

Using a gigantic, portable mural teeming with intricate images of plants and animals, the Bees will walk participants through the connections between mountain top removal coal mining, coal-fired electricity and climate change. Using storytelling, small and full group discussions, we'll examine the local to global impacts of our industrialized way of life, drawing out connections to our participants' daily lives. Together we will analyze real costs, root causes, and what deep change can and does actually look like!

This workshop raises questions about resistance, regeneration, and remediation while celebrating stories of struggle from impacted communities. The TRUE COST OF COAL will challenge all of us who casually flip on a light switch to examine our own connections to this newest, most destructive form of coal mining—and to think about what we can do to stop it from within our own communities.
