Beekeeping Experiments is a collaboration between Town Lab and Huddersfield-based artist Diana Spurite exploring beekeeping in the town centre.

Beekeeping acts as a probe to begin testing out a town, Huddersfield, by making the ecology of the town centre visible, not just the biological ecology needed to support bees, but also the civic ecology of regulations and ownership: what do we need to do to establish beekeeping in a town centre?

The aim of Town Lab is to conduct research into towns as different from cities or villages and to try out creative interventions that support towns to flourish on their own terms.

The Town Lab is an Arts led research into towns. Researching towns as different kinds of places to either cities or villages and testing creative interventions that support towns to flourish on their own terms. The first Town Lab project was Beekeeping Experiments 01 – See below:
