National Geographic Live — Standing at the Water’s Edge

Contest time!

We have a great love of the arts, as you can imagine! We’ve recently partnered up with the Seattle Symphony to put together some fun contests! In April, they’ve provided tickets to one of their upcoming National Geographic Live events, which is a fabulous tie in to Glazer’s, and to photography. The event in April features Cristina Mittermeier, called “Standing at the Water’s Edge”.

Cristina is a photojournalist whose work has a focus on the environment, her background as marine biologist gives her a special connection to the sea, oceans and rivers of the world.

From the Seattle Symphony Website:

Photojournalist Cristina Mittermeier knows the power of water: the power to give life when it is respected, and the power to destroy when it is misused. During her time with the Kayapó people in the Amazon, she documented a society that relied on their local waterway to survive — and found their way of life threatened by a massive new dam. In British Columbia, she found First Nations protecting their sacred headwaters, and in Hawaii, a new community of indigenous peoples seeking to reclaim their connection to the sea. She learned that one concept bound these three disparate communities together: “Enoughness,” or taking only that which you need.

Cristina is a Mexican-born marine biologist and photographer specializing in conservation issues surrounding the ocean and indigenous cultures. As a writer and a photographer for the past 25 years, her work centers on the delicate balance between human well-being and healthy ecosystems.

Enter to Win a pair of tickets to the event on April 8th at 2PM.
