National Geographic Live returns to Kansas City with a new five-part speaker series at the Muriel Kauffman Theatre. If you’ve attended previous Nat Geo Live events, you know that they are lavishly illustrated, firsthand presentations by people who travel the world to get the powerful stories and images you’ve seen on the National Geographic Channel and in National Geographic Magazine. If you haven’t, join the adventure this season at the Kauffman Center!

Tickets and series packages are still available for our remaining 2015 events. Check the links below for more information about National Geographic Live events in Kansas City.

    Photographer Joel Sartore has learned the hard way that there’s more to the job than just traveling to exotic locales and shooting pictures. From being chased by angry and hungry animals to surviving multiple traffic accidents in far-flung places, things can go wrong in the field, and for Sartore, they often do.
