SWARM is an ongoing eco project, created by artist and beekeeper Laney Birkhead, which through creative endeavour, raises awareness about bee decline, and highlights the importance of pollinators in our environment.
SWARM comprises of an enormous interactive Art Installation of 50,000 bees, hand printed on calico by hundreds of people, measuring 7 x 23 metres creating a 3D walk inside ‘Hive’.
This is complemented by other beautiful bee inspired artworks from a collective of local artists, who have created a thought provoking response to the critical issue.
