About Bee Weeks

In 2014, Piti Theatre launched a new initiative based on the successful touring of our To Bee or Not to Bee performance. Bee Weeks use the arts to leverage community and school based activities that move towns toward sustainability and create new partnerships between environmental stewards. Bee Weeks also set the stage for communities to become Bee Friendly Towns which are are a set of benchmarks that measure how hospitable any given community is (and can become) towards its’ smallest, and busiest, employees.
