The Community Bee Clinic is a radical veterinary practice and participatory multimedia installation where visitors can become emergency caregivers for dying honey bees. Through the performance of interspecies nursing care and use of speculative biomedical objects, participants are invited to engage with non-human bodies and ecologies in new ways and at new scales.

The Community Bee Clinic project was created in collaboration with UC San Diego’s Nieh Lab in the Department of Ecology, Behavior, and Evolution, and it is supported by funding from the Russell Grant.
