After the Bees, Giving Gifts in Ancient Egypt and Time for the Paleaolithic

December 4, 2015

Three more Museum Meets events for December.

Monday 7 December 11.30am – A workshop with artists Megan Powell and Jonny Briggs.



Come join a group critique to discuss the progression of project ‘After the Bees’ made in partnership with Manchester Museum, and a group critique of student’s artworks, ideas or writing.

‘After the bees’ is a series of visual artworks collaborating, moving image, portraiture, photography, arts writing
and sculpture, exploring the narrative premise of Einstein’s prediction “If the bee disappeared off the surface of the globe then man would only have four years of life left”.

The project will be informed by beekeepers, ecologists and sustainability experts, producing an original narrative exploring the conservation issues affecting bees through artistic practice.

The project will result in a screening, exhibition of photography and artist talk at Manchester Museum in 2016.

This will be followed by a talk at Manchester City Gallery, a solo show at Winterbourne House and Gardens, and a research seminar with postgraduate students of the Art History department at The University of Manchester.

12 places available. To book please e mail
