TOArts Trailblazers: Mike Libecki

January 26, 2024 View Website

This year TOArts has partnered with Changemaker Talent to present a dynamic group of speakers in the 2023-24 season of its annual National Geographic series, now called TOArts Trailblazers. This exciting 4-part series will include a remarkable lineup of renowned trailblazers who have pushed the boundaries in their respective fields and whose work reveals fascinating insights about our planet.

TOArts Trailblazers will be an annual series featuring a broad range of talents, including renowned photographers, scientists, filmmakers and adventurers sharing their behind-the-scenes stories from the front lines of exploration alongside stunning imagery and gripping footage.

Mark your calendars for Friday, January 26, 2024, for adventurer Mike Libecki. Journey alongside Libecki, 2013 National Geographic Adventurer of the Year, to some of the most remote regions of the world—from the Greenland Arctic to the deepest jungles on the planet. Known for his tireless optimism, Libecki is fearless in the face of daunting challenges, such as climbing the largest unclimbed peak in Antarctica or paddling through 80 miles of sea ice to come face-to-face with the world’s largest carnivore. He’s on a quest to complete 100 expeditions by the time he’s 100 – and he’s nearly there.

All events will take place at 8:00 PM at the Kavli Theatre, at The Bank of American Performing Arts Center and will feature gorgeous photography and exciting video footage, along with a rich storytelling. Following each presentation, there will be a Q&A session, and an audience meet & greet, providing attendees with the opportunity to engage directly with the visiting speakers.
