Calgary is home and hub to Canada’s energy industry. Stop by the Edison at 150 9th Avenue for an immersive experience to learn more about the stunning winter scenes that are often forgotten.
Bring your smart phone, your curiosity and your love of nature.
Art can help increase environmental literacy by educating audiences on the acts of care for the land. The Canadian energy industry adheres to some of the strictest environmental standards and this is often overlooked in mainstream and social media.
Try on a set of VR Goggles to spark your curiosity and increase your awareness of responsible environmental actions and reclamation as well as to understand misinterpretations of industry closure activities. Check out the ART of Reclamation which was created to remind people that companies have expended great efforts to evolve and ensure reclaimed and responsibly-managed sites are left behind.
These are the untold stories that show how our industry evolved, advanced and emerged as a world leader in caring for the land which we all benefit from. Through art, we can facilitate crucial conversations and critical thinking in a way that is balanced and based on data.
Shannon Carla King, Canada’s reclamation, preservation and conservation artist will be on site to facilitate the VR experience and guide you through the collection of acrylic paintings and prints from 7:00 am to 1:00 pm. All art originals and prints have QR codes and the GREEN collection brochure can be used to learn more about each painting.
Mark your calendar for a special Q&A with Tanya Richens, Reclamation Planner and Author of a new children’s STEM book on careers in reclamation. She will be available to answer questions about reclamation from 11:30 am to 1:00 pm on February 6 and 15th.
