THE TREES AND THE BEES
2PM, 6th August, 2022
Join us for a panel discussion and participatory workshop for the final weekend of PROMISE THE EARTH conducted by local environmentalists Anna Scobie from Urban Hum, artist Brett McMahon, and David Sivyer from Feedback Organic.
On Saturday the 6th of August, THE TREES AND THE BEES brings an important issue to light: What has happened to Newcastle honeybees and how can we help?
As the PROMISE THE EARTH exhibition draws to a close, The Lock-Up invites you to a very special symposium and workshop conducted by local environmentalists Anna Scobie from Urban Hum, exhibition artist Brett McMahon, and David Sivyer from Feedback Organic.
The second part of a five-part exhibition series curated by Meryl Ryan and Naomi Riddle, PROMISE THE EARTH continues the conversation on urgent ecological imperatives and the environment. Equally, it speaks to cultural perspectives, ritual and connection. Moving between installation, photomedia, painting and interactive experiences, this exhibition presents earth as a material for making, as a site of sustenance and survival, and as a metaphor for home.
THE TREES AND THE BEES will cover what you need to know, what you can do to help, and how to support our native pollinators.
THE TREES AND THE BEES panel discussion will start from 2 PM and at 3 PM Anna Scobie from Urban Hum will run a workshop on making bee hotels for solitary native bees. Trees in Newcastle will also have pollinator-attracting seedlings for sale.
