From Here & Away is excited to host this artist talk and special presentation from Build Films co-founder and conservationist, Chris Paetkau, about the work they’ve been doing in the High North with Polar Bears and Beluga Whales over the last few years.
The presentation will focus on two main questions. 1. How can creativity impact conservation efforts? 2. How can this be achieved in a responsible way? (i.e considering all people, cultures, traditions, and the well being of animals and the land.)
Build Films will deliver a compelling message that will be backed up with stories of the field work and breathtaking moving and still images of animals they’ve encountered and people they’ve built relationships with.
A question and answer period will follow the presentation.
Admission is by donation and will be limited to about 40 spots. So if you want a good view of the screen, arrive early!
