Last Saturday in behave of the bee collective, I presented at the festooning event at the 808 gallery of Boston University.
Festooning is a lacework of bees hanging together, leg-to-leg, between the frames of comb. The structure symbolizes how bees are part of a collective in which every individual takes part in the greater good. I good title for the event, because from the moment I entered, I felt a strong sense of solidarity between people with the same goal: helping bees by keeping them.
Besides my lecture about the projects of the bee collective, especially the sky-hive, 5 others presented their way of urban beekeeping.
On Saturday February 23th, Bee Collective will participate in the Festooning Event taking place at Boston University. Beekeepers, designers, community builders and apicultural experts will shed their light on beehavior, community activism and contemporary environmentalism. See the full program here.
