National Geographic Live

Thank you for your support of Arts Commons Presents National Geographic Live!

While our 2019-20 season was sadly cut short for the health and safety of our community, we want to thank you for sharing the powerful, inspiring, and energizing National Geographic Live experience with us.

Damien Mander and Vimbai Kumire shared with us incredible and heart-breaking stories of the challenges facing Africa’s more endangered wildlife and the devoted defenders of those animals while Zoltan Takacs introduced us to cutting edge research into the world’s most venomous animals, and how they’re helping to save lives today.

And to those of you who were able to donate the value of your tickets back to Arts Commons, we extend a special thank you. Your generosity has enabled us to continue to support local artists impacted by COVID-19 and continue to stay viable so we can welcome you back when it is safe to do so.

National Geographic Live! is supported by presenting sponsor ConocoPhillips, who shares Arts Commons Presents excitement for powerful learning moments, and inspiring stories about conserving our wild world.


We have been overwhelmed by the love and generosity of our community and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. The shows and activities that we present, are all to serve the creative soul of this city and we hope to announce the details around our 20-21 season in the coming months.We’re here for you, and we can’t wait to welcome you back.
