SUMM Republic - Bee Art Culture

project management, workshop and design

Workshops for Kids · Bee topics linked with art, theater and nature games.

Bees and humans. What can we learn from dancers, improvisation artists, honey makers, architects, guards and pilots? We will go on an expedition into the world of bees, visit their animal relatives and their surroundings. We will play a lot, do experiments, explore nature and produce art. Just as the bees do.

Workshops with children & young people (in german)

SUMM-BieneKunstKultur is a cooperation between Tafel Potsdam, NABU Potsdam and the children’s club “Unser Haus”. The project was funded 2018-2022 in the program “Tafel macht Kultur”, and is supported since 2023 by Spielmobile “Spielen macht stark! – Erforschen, Gestalten und Aneignen” by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research as part of “Kultur macht Stark. Alliances for Education”.

Three bee melodies make a SUMM quodlibet.

Summ summ summ, Biene summ herum.
Bienen schwitzen Wachs, Bienen kleben Propolis.
Gelée Royal für die Königin!

Buzz buzz buzz, bees buzz around.
Bees sweat wax, bees stick propolis.
Royal jelly for the queen!
