On Sunday, April 21, The Spire hosts adventurer, author, filmmaker, and speaker, Jill Heinerth for an Earth Day multimedia presentation in the facility’s historic performance hall.
The event will take guests through Jill’s exciting and ongoing career as one of the world’s most accomplished underwater explorers and will invite more than six-hundred guests to interact with environmental agencies and organizations following the talk.
From diving iceberg caves in Antarctica with National Geographic to training divers on the set of Avatar 2, Jill’s curiosity and passion about our watery planet is the driving force in her life. In her visually stunning presentations, she encourages audiences to reach beyond their limitations, challenge the unknown, and love our rich and magnificent oceans and waterways.
Following the presentation, attendees will be invited to explore a huge interactive and walkable map provided by The Royal Canadian Geographical Society and Ontario Association of Geographic & Environmental Education. These two organizations will be onsite to engage guests and help further their education on the importance of protecting our natural world.
Kingston Youth Climate Action will be presenting a large, water system focused, art installation, allowing guests to mingle, speak with partnering agencies, and engage with art provided by a youth driven climate action group.
