The Beehive Design Collective is a wildly- motivated, all-volunteer, art-activist collective dedicated to “cross-pollinating the grassroots” by creating collaborative, anti-copyright images for use as educational and organizing tools. We work anonymously as word-to-image translators of complex global stories, gathered through conversations with affected communities.
Since 2000, we have disseminated more than 60,000 posters throughout Americas, entirely by grassroots, hand-to-hand, donation-based distribution! Our graphics have tackled issues from globalization and biotechnology to the drug war and free trade policy.
A committed group of mostly women, we are working to create holistic, accessible, and educational images that inspire critical reflection and strategic action.
