Arts Commons Presents: National Geographic Live
- The Risky Science of Exploration with Kenny Broad


CALGARY – Arts Commons Presents is proud to welcome National Geographic Live speaker and environmental anthropologist Kenny Broad with The Risky Science of Exploration on February 12 & 13, 2017 in the Jack Singer Concert Hall.

Never shying away from extreme physical conditions or tough issues, Broad has been making links between the underwater world and our societal and environmental challenges above ground, telling remarkable stories that leave us all awestruck. Broad returns to Calgary with more entertaining stories of his triumphs, his tragedies, and his just plain weird experiences, both underwater and above. 

"I don't believe in setting boundaries or firm expectations—those are just limitations. That's why I find both underwater cave exploration and interdisciplinary research so engaging. You never know what you're going to discover until you get there," says National Geographic Explorer Kenny Broad. 

Among other achievements, Kenny Broad led the Bahamas Blue Hole Project, which appeared as a cover story in National Geographic, with photos from the late Wes Skiles, with whom he was awarded 2011 National Geographic Explorer of the Year.
