The Town of Canmore is pleased to present FIRST THURSDAYS, a free speaker series dedicated to bringing together the community and creativity under one roof. With speakers ranging from artists to adventurers, and talks spanning from funny to fundamental, FIRST THURSDAYS presents the best of expression, innovation and inspiration.
Join us at artsPlace (905-8 Avenue) for all of our FIRST THURSDAYS events.
Time: 7:00 p.m.
Join Stephen Legault as he discusses the third volume in his trilogy of photography and storytelling books, The Water Within: Photographs and Stories from Waterton Lakes and the Castle Wildland, which was inspired by his lifelong advocacy for protected areas like southern Alberta’s Castle region, and the 2017 Kenow Fire that burnt half of the vegetated area of Waterton Lakes in a matter of a few dramatic hours. This book follows Stephen as he sets out just days after the fire was under control to document the region as it recovered from decades of abuse in the Castle, and a climate change triggered wild fire. This talk goes behind the camera and into the grasslands, woods and wild mountain landscapes of this treasured ecosystem for a unique “making of” experience.
Stephen is the author of sixteen books, including books of essays, personal narrative, three murder-mystery series and three coffee table books of photography.
