STAY TOONED!

It is well known that nature needs pollinators every day. Flowers, fruits and vegetables would not exist without the painstaking work of these useful insects. GREEN ISLAND, with the international program ALVEARI URBANI/Urban BeeHives deals with these issues through the encounter of languages: art, design, music, agriculture, botany, sociality. To better communicate these fundamental messages, we are creating a special platform, in collaboration with University of Milano Bicocca.

 

BEE THE CHANGE!

ALVEARI URBANI/Urban BeeHives organizes for this winter a training course dedicated to the urban beekeeping and botany for pollinators, open to all citizens, to young people and women, starting January 2022. The program is in collaboration with Parco Cascina Merlata Milano.

BEE THE CHANGE!

ALVEARI URBANI/Urban BeeHives project, started in Milan in 2014, has created the first Artist's Beehive in Europe, with beehives created by artists and designers from all over the world. The project is dedicated to the valorization of biodiversity, to recover abandoned green areas, to the awareness of the pollinators’ relevance, to the sharing of knowledge and sociality.

The project 'THE MOBILE HERBARIUM’ proposes artworks by international artists on the theme of herbariums and vegetation in motion. All the works, created specifically for the occasion, built the idea of ‘herbarium’ as fragile although relevant art work to be collected. 'This vegetation is free to across borders with spores and seeds; is narrated through images and drawings by international artists; is an unprecedented puzzle of botanical, naturalistic and creative forms', says curator Claudia Zanfi.

4th-12th September, 2021

Art & Nature, are the themes proposed this year by the international program 'GREEN ISLAND', during Milano Design Week. An urban journey dedicated to creativity and eco-design, in the area of Isola District.

With the support of BPER Banca and media partner ARTRIBUNE.

New works by international artists on the theme of 'Art and Nature', vegetation in motion, herbarium in voyage.

The project, conceived for the Sociology Fest of Modena, is configured as a real journey, a path for images that will be articulated in three Italian cities (Milan, Mantua, Modena), ending in an exhibition at the Botanical Garden of Modena. The aim is to promote the concept of beauty and slow mobility (traveling by train), combining cultural subjects and practices, projections and public exhibitions, to raise awareness of urgent issues such as art, society, landscape.

Spring Solstice Week

URBAN HIVES is also a program to monitor the quality of the air and the environment where we live, through the work of bees. On the ‘Spring Solstice Week’ a special workshop dedicated to botany and flowers for pollinators will be held online. Each of us can participate by improving the environment and the preservation of bees, sowing useful flowers, rich in pollen and nectar. Species that are particularly attractive to bees and butterflies include plants useful in cooking such as: rosemary, sage, borage, chives, thyme, basil, alfalfa, allium, clover. In addition, the beautiful blooms of mallow, lavender, phacelia, calendula, cosmos, bluebells, violets are also useful for bees.

The program is curated by Claudia Zanfi, Green Island’s director.
