Calgary Zoo Lessons

A couple of weeks back I visited the Calgary Zoo at night to enjoy Illuminasia, a lantern & garden festival presented by Sinopec Canada.

I was deeply impressed.

The concept captured cultural aspects of China, Japan and India through food, garden and art. All at night.

One would think that a zoo has a fixed schedule, and that there’s nothing to do at it after 8 pm.

That’s not the case here, and that’s fantastic.

I learned two lessons from that experience:

  1. Culture can be transmitted through creativity at a zoo. It’s not an exclusive thing from libraries or museums.
  2. Art is a way of expressing knowledge.

I love you, Calgary Zoo.
