!Pollinate! theme for 2016
“Pollinate: collaborate, create, celebrate” is the theme for Questa’s 2016 Event & education series.
Why? Pollination happens every year, all around us, impacts many parts of our lives and yet remains a mystery to many of us. Pollination is beautiful, complex, sexy and essential for the survival of plants, animals and humans. The process is inherently collaborative. This is true literally, for plants to reproduce (think food!) and for bees, butterflies and other pollinators to survive. It’s also true figuratively, as with the “cross-pollination” of ideas that prompt creativity, understanding and innovation. The ¡Pollinate! theme is a call for putting our connections to work.
