In this class participants will explore the power of honeybees as a metaphor for resilience and connection. Participants will gather virtually with Ang Roell author of ‘Radicalize the Hive’ and lead beekeeper at They Keep Bees, a queer & trans led beekeeping project. Roell will open the session with storytelling and embodied practice before small groups convene for a reflective exercise in building connection & capacity.
Ang Roell is an author, beekeeper and collaborator. Ang founded and co-runs They Keep Bees, a queer & trans led beekeeping project. They are the author of ‘Radicalize the Hive’ and are currently collaborating with partners in the Northeast to launch a queen bee rearing school for beekeepers who want to use generative & nurturing practices to be better honeybee stewards.
Ang is a white, Ukrainian/German nonbinary queer person living and working on Nipmuc, Pocumtuc and Wabanaki land in Western Massachusetts and working on Miccosukee land in the Southeastern part of Florida.
