MACHIAS – The Beehive Design Collective will debut their long-anticipated â€śTrue Cost of Coalâ€ť graphics campaign at 7:00 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 9 in the Machias Valley Grange Hall.
Two years in the making, â€śThe True Cost of Coalâ€ť is an elaborate narrative illustration that explores the complex story of mountaintop removal coal mining and the broader impacts of coal in Appalachia and beyond. The image is the culmination of an intensive and collaborative research process, as the Beehive methodology centers on first hand story-sharing. To create the poster, the Beehive interviewed hundreds of community members throughout the Appalachia region. â€śWe feel itâ€™s extremely important to gather our information from as close to the source as possible,â€ť Emma bee says.
The Beehive Collective is currently booking a nation-wide tour to distribute the graphic. For more information and to view the graphics visit www.beehivecollective.org OR beehivecollective.blogspot.com.
