For many years we have been a strong supporter of Arts Commons, and on April 24 it was announced that we will be the new Presenting Sponsor of their 2018-19 National Geographic Live speaker series.

“We’re proud to be the Presenting Sponsor of the 2018-19 season of National Geographic Live,” said Michael Hatfield, CPC president, in a news release from Arts Commons. “Giving back to the communities where we live and work is important to us and we look forward to supporting this upcoming season together with Arts Commons.”

National Geographic Live features dynamic speakers who are considered among the best in their fields. Using award-winning photographs and video, these captivating storytellers share adventures from the field, reporting on a wide range of human-interest and conservation topics and sharing messages of exploration and discovery to inspire both adult and student audiences.

The 2018-19 season will feature five National Geographic explorers who will give eight public presentations to Calgarians and five student matinee presentations.

The season will get underway in November 2018, with the presentation Social by Nature by film maker and photographer Ronan Donovan. To see the season’s schedule and to learn more about National Geographic Live, visit
