One Bee, many mouths to feed…
29 July 2016 Free
2:00 pm – 4:00 pm
FWhat changes have you seen? | What makes you change? | What is change for? | What would you change? | Why do we resist change? | What makes us accept change?
International artists from the e:collective launch their debut exhibition of new work exploring our relationship with change on a social, economic, environmental and personal level. The exhibition will challenge, enact, refresh and stimulate our perceptions and thoughts on change and will be viewed alongside current research by scientists at the Global Sustainability Institute, Anglia Ruskin University, Cambridge.
During the exhibition artists in residence Mark Vennegoor and Aurora Sciabarra will each develop new work in the gallery, inviting visitors to participate in their practice.
One Bee many mouths to feed, Friday 29th July, 2-4pm

What would a world be like without bees?
Join artist Aurora at her dinner table, and discover what your plate of food would look like without bees. Draw, write and discuss what a world without bees would look like, and what it means for the food chain and our own food production.
Find out the number of flowers a bee can visit per day, a quantity of honey a hive can produce per year, the quantity of beeswax they make, as well as the fruits and vegetables available as a result of their work.
Bees have started to disappear and “the earth has screamed”, as reported by Professor Challenger, a Felix Guattari and Gilles Deleuze’s character (A Thousand Plateaus).
