The Beehive Design Collective and Movimiento Ríos Vivos presents a multimedia journey about arts, media and land defense in South America with original photographs, maps and short films accompanied by live narration. Pollinating Rios Vivos shares a glimpse into communities that are defending their territories in the face of resource extraction industries.
Come to hear stories from Ríos Vivos Colombia, a social movement made up of communities impacted by dams that are struggling in the defense of their territories and rivers, and seek an energy model by and for the people. You will also learn about the work of Polinizaciones, a Beehive grassroots process that collaborates with communities impacted by resource extraction through the use of arts, culture, and communications as strategies for land defense.
We’ll be traveling with the giant art murals of Mesoamérica Resiste, a fully stocked distro of activist art, Ríos Vivos t-shirts and caps, handicrafts from territories in resistance, stories, films, and experiences to share.
También se ofrece talleres en castellano.
