The Beehive Design Collective and Test Their Logik will again hit the road for a cross-Canada tour entitled "Art of Resistance Tour vol.2" this summer. They'll be combining storytelling and presentations of their newest masterpiece MesoAmérica Resiste! with hip-hop performances. They'll be travelling with giant art murals, a distro of activist art and literature, and stories, songs, and experiences to share.
*MesoAmérica Resiste Story-telling workshop* by the Beehive Design Collective at 7pm.
MesoAmérica Resiste is the long awaited final instalment in the Beehive’s graphic trilogy about globalization in the Americas! The Mesoamérica Resiste graphic reflects the Beehive’s efforts to document and share diverse stories of communities defending their sovereignty and building alternatives to top-down development plans - especially organizing led by Indigenous peoples, who have fought back against colonialism and genocide for centuries.
*Test Their Logik show* at 9pm
Using hip-hop to inspire political action and to deliver potent messages of social and environmental justice, TEST THEIR LOGIK has developed a following amongst activists and hip-hop heads alike. For 7 years they've toured this planet, supporting social movements and freedom fighters at the frontlines of struggles against the tyranny and violence of the powerful, as well as rocking parties, festivals, and stages on every continent.

Are you interested in learning about self-publishing? Is there an issue, story, movement, emotion, etc… that you want to share? Let’s make a book about it! Come on out to Camas for an interactive workshop about zine-making.
We will run through a quick introduction about what zines are, the power that is held within self-publishing and how we can all make these simple yet powerful books. We will provide some of the tools for zine-making, including paper, glue, scissors and cheap magazines for sale. Most of the evening will be spent putting together our books and hanging out. Let’s come together and inspire each other to create. Everyone is welcome!
Note: Camas has a photocopier that can be used whenever you finish your zine! You can finish it on your own time. (Sometimes it takes a while to complete a zine- be patient with yourself!)
