Dreams and Journeys: An Environmental Odyssey
By Mike Beedell and Ian Tamblyn

Travel along with Mike Beedell and Ian Tamblyn for an evening of inspiring images, songs and remarkable experiences as they relive their journeys to some of the most far-flung corners of Canada - ranging from the Torngat Mountains on Labrador's east coast to the lush green islands of Haida Gwaii to many rugged parts of the Canadian Arctic. Sing along as Ian entertains us with ballads about his travels and experiences, while you are inspired by Mike's many outstanding images and videotape.

Mike Beedell is an award winning photographer, guide and outdoor educator with a passion for exploring the Canadian landscape. Over the last 30 years he has paddled, skied, hiked, sailed and dog-sledded over 45,000 kilometres to capture on film the essence of our vast country. Mike's keen interest in remote communities, indigenous people and endangered environments has taken him to many corners of the earth. Mike Beedell lectures internationally sharing his journeys of discovery. He is the author of "The Magnetic North".

Ian Tamblyn is known as Canada's folk troubadour. This multi-talented singer, songwriter, composer and explorer will focus on songs with a sense of place. Ian's travels as an artistic observer and contributor have found their way into many of his songs and instrumental recordings. Ian Tamblyn was honoured with the Estelle Klein Award in 2002 for his lifelong contributions to the Canadian music community.

The Royal Canadian Geographical Society invites you to listen, watch, learn, and sing along with these two explorers. Come experience their unforgettable journeys and hopefully come away with some dreams for travels of your own. Join us in celebrating 75 years of "making Canada better known to Canadians and the world."
