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.
