ART, POETRY, STORYTELLING AND HIP HOP SHOW COMING TO GLOBAL MARKET ON JULY 8TH 5-8PM
A swarm is coming! The Beehive Design Collective and Test Their Logik will be coming to Brandon, MB. They will be combining storytelling and presentations of their most recent masterpiece, MesoAmérica Resiste! with hip-hop performances and shows by Test Their Logik. They will be travelling with giant art murals, a distro of activist art and literature, stories, songs, and experiences to share.
Global Market is pleased to announce that this collaboration will be presenting and performing at the Market on July 8th, from 5 to 8pm. The event is free and open to the public but, we will be accepting donations at the entrance that will go toward Canadian Mental Health Association Westman Region (CMHA) programs. Food and refreshments will be sold at our new Global Market Lemonade stand through the course of the evening.
The Beehive is an all-volunteer swarm of educators, artists, and activists who use images to communicate and educate people about the complex realities of our times. The dizzyingly detailed, hand- drawn, large- format posters and banners they tour with are portable murals that come alive through storytelling, illuminating how single issues are interconnected and part of bigger systems. Join in as the Bees deconstruct often overwhelming global issues in an engaging and interactive presentation, using metaphors from the natural world to connect social and environmental struggles.
We will kick the event off with a workshop, presented by Darius from Test Their Logik, at 5pm in the Medallion Room located at 23-12th street, attached to the Building Re-Fit Store. This workshop will have a focus on social justice issues around the world and hip hop which will be lead as a participatory and hands-on workshop for youth on the interconnections of hip hop culture. Followed after the workshop there will be a presentation of recent artwork done by artists from the Beehive Design Collective. Ending the evening with a hip hop show from Test Their Logik who is already working on their third album after recently releasing their second, “BE”.
“We are really looking forward to this group coming to our community.” Says Ashley, “I first met them last year when they stopped in Brandon and was instantly inspired by their passion and beautiful yet powerful creativity. I hope that this event will bring a feeling of community or social awareness to those who attend, especially youth in this area.”
