About the Pollination Project

Feature image by Amy Shelton

The York St John Pollination Project is a funded, multi-disciplinary project that aims to ‘pollinate’ creative writing, visual art, music and critical writing whilst raising the awareness of the importance of bees and other pollinators to our Eco-system. The images and writings that appear on these pages have been inspired by student trips to the Wellcome Trust and The Hive at Kew; a Pollination Symposium and Wildflower Workshop.

The project has so far brought together students, artists, sculptors, entomologists, conservationists, writers and gardeners, and aims to continue to make these inspirational links in the future.

This website serves as a creative ‘pollen’ collection. Please read, view and enjoy the creative work gathered here. If you are inspired to respond with your own writing, artwork or music, and are willing to share that on this site, you will be continuing our ‘pollination’.
