Wade Davis is the National Geographic Explorer in Residence, an ethnobotanist, author and above all else an extraordinary storyteller (and fellow British Columbian!).

On April 13th at the Diane Farris Gallery, Phil will be launching his new book, Women Empowered. Phil will be joined by Michael Bednar, an award winning Vancouver-based photographer who will be showing images from his recent trip to Mongolia. A percentages of Michael’s sales will be donated to Atira’s Digital Storytelling Project. Call 604-531-9143 to RSVP
