Join us for a night of inspiring first ascents, community building, and epic tales of journeying across the world to realize a dream. Dave Anderson, a Planet GRANTS It! Recipient, travelled to Genyen China back in 2011 to realize a his own dream: to establish first ascents in the Genyen Massif and help create awareness around a small English teaching school at the base of the mountain.
Dave Anderson, a professional photgrapher and writer, develops and leads trips to Taiwan and China. When not pursuing work, his own adventures have taken him to a variety of landscapes covering 15 countries on four continents. Last year, Dave and his team turned their sights on two lone spires in the Genyen Massif, China. As if his expedition isn’t inspiring enough, immediately following the summit attempt, Dave spent two weeks in the nearby town of Litang, documenting their growth to help raise money to build their school.
Join Dave on two separate nights to hear of his tales of adventure and view amazing photos of spectacular landscapes.
