Will there come a day when more people live off of the earth than on it? Bryan will talk about why he thinks that’s a good idea, and how it could happen.

The images and design work from his studio Spacehabs.com are regularly featured in publications like National Geographic, New Scientist and Discovery Channel in support of space exploration and settlement projects. Bryan is the concept designer for Mars One and one of the founders of the space resources company Deep Space Industries.

Tyler Stewart

When you think of a visit to a museum, what do you picture in your head? Most times, it’s a quiet place of inner contemplation, but the new National Music Centre (NMC) aims to thrill visitors with an experience more like a music festival than a museum. NMC exhibitions manager Tyler Stewart tells us about bringing musical stories to life in a dynamic and compelling way that will change visitors’ expectations of what a museum can be like.

What places make Calgarians happy?
John Lewis from Intelligent Futures and #happyyc

John Lewis from Intelligent Futures

John Lewis

Most of the time, discussion about the evolution of Calgary is focused on the negative and the controversial. This isn’t unique to Calgary and is indicative of the challenges of city-building everywhere. While this kind of debate and dialogue is essential in a democracy, it’s important to reflect on what is working well. That’s why John and his team created the #happyyc project. Hear what they learned after taking to the streets of Calgary and online, asking Calgarians to map the places that make them happy.
