Telling the Bees comprised two interdisciplinary arts and humanities research projects (Feb 2015 - Sept 2016, Feb 2017 - Sept 2018) between the Universities of York, Sheffield and Lancaster, working with Tay Landscape Partnership, GrowTheatre (Sheffield) and Explore York Libraries & Archives. Across both projects, Telling the Bees fostered new ways of thinking about bees and beekeeping through design, drama, and digital making.
