National Geographic Live - Student Shows

National Geographic Live Student Events

Behind every great National Geographic story there is a great storyteller. 

Arts Commons presents a showcase of world-class explorers, photographers and scientists for affordable, curriculum-linked, lavishly illustrated presentations designed to inspire learning and discovery. 

These accomplished individuals are both documenting and helping to preserve our world’s natural beauty, while expanding the frontiers of human knowledge and achievement.  In a way that’s accessible to students and families.

 All presentations begin at 10:15am and are one-hour in length including an engaging Q & A. Tickets are $11 per participant. The full line-up for 2017-18 season National Geographic Live Student Matinees will be available in May 2017.
