Lydia Needle

I am an art activist, a maker of gentle protest works, Lead Artist and Curator of the ongoing collaborative project called ‘FIFTY BEES: The Interconnectedness of All Things’. It was conceived in 2017 to use art to concentrate attention on the status of the British bee population and how endangered it is. To date, there have been 200 bees, 200 companion works and 4 exhibitions, the latest held in the Long Gallery at Black Swan in 2020. My next exhibition, ‘Towards the Tipping Point: Global Swarming’, in collaboration with Rebecca Bruton, takes place at ACEarts in Somerton from 31 October, 2020.
