Award-winning explorer to give talks in Calgary

January 12, 2017 by  

Environmental anthropologist Kenny Bond has planned two evenings for Calgary where he will share his love of adventure and learning more about the world around him.

Offered as part of the National Geographic Live series, which is being presented by Arts Commons, Bond’s talks will provide details about the different experiences he has had as part of his work. They will include a discussion of how he was once trapped in an underwater cave and running out of oxygen, how he chased venomous snakes, the effort he puts into conducting his research and also his account of when he was stranded alone on an island.

According to the event’s organizers, Bond was named the 2011 Explorer of the Year by National Geographic, so his talk will offer something new for everyone. It includes stories told with a sense of humor and an interdisciplinary approach. Stationery printers can be called upon to produce programs and other printed items for an event like this.

The lectures will be held on February 12 and 13 in the Arts Commons’ Jack Singer Concert Hall. The Sunday session will begin at 2:00 pm, while Monday’s will start at 7:00 pm. Ticket prices start at $29.00 each, and they, along with more information about Bond and his research, can be obtained by visiting the Arts Commons’ website.
