PolliNation was 2017’s Community Art Project, inspired by microscopic images of pollen and created from over 300 individual hexagons. The project was part of Telling the Bees, a 12 month project bringing drama, design, storytelling, media arts and the maker movement together to explore playful, immersive ways to understand environment issues and share future visions about bees and bookkeeping.

PolliNation is a partnership project between York Learning, Explore York, University of York and supported by Telling the Bees project partners – Sheffield University, Lancaster University and Grow Theatre.

Images were created by learners and members of the public and the exhibition took place from Friday 27 October – Friday 24 November 2017 at York Explore Library.
