between A and Bee

Walking the Land are joined by artist Tara Downs and the Global Bee Project on a 4 day walk from Stroud to Bath.
Starting in Stroud early on Sunday 30th May, the walk will follow the beautiful Cotswold Way down to Bath. The project will combine scientific and artistic approaches investigating the UK’s native bee population.
On Thursday 3rd June artists and scientists will be joined by Sue Hart of Baka Beyond and friends who will show artworks, talk and sing about their recent encounters with bees at 18:30 at The Octagon, Milsom Street, Bath.
You’ll be able to follow our progress on this page where we hope to present some of our photographs, drawings, words and sounds.
