We all love bees, but other pollinators are just as important! How can we help hoverflies, butterflies, beetles, wasps, moths and other insects to thrive and continue to keep our ecosystems fruitful? This video is a good place to start!
More Than Bees was created using sound recordings and drawings by a diverse range of people in Dublin and Laois, Ireland. It was first screened at Dunamaise Arts Centre, Portlaoise, as part of Laois County Council's Pollinator Party.
The video will be screened again at a pollinator-themed poetry, music and video evening on 30th November 2017, Remembrance Day for Lost Species, at St. Michan's Church, Dublin 7. You can also see an exhibition of my work at Bí URBAN, Stoneybatter, Dublin 7, from 4th to 18th of November 2017. For more information, visit: https://www.nessadarcy.ie/events/
I'm a creative entomologist whose goal is to reintroduce humans to their natural habitat through colourful encounters with diverse and underappreciated insects.
