We set up Bee Strong following the Manchester Areana Attack. We wanted to create a way to give children and people of all ages, a platform to communicate their thoughts and feelings as one in response. We designed some simple activity packs and sent them out in to schools. The idea being that the children decorate a worker bee and combine them all to create #HiveOfPositivity.
As the project has grown throughout schools, we were able to successfully crowdfund £1500 in order to create a large mural with Manchester mural artist Qubek. We see this as the chance to create another #HiveOfPositivty, in a different medium. Something that will permanently reflect the thoughts and feelings of all of us in response to the attack.
