Carl Dixon is one of Canada’s stellar rock musicians. His first international record deal came with Coney Hatch in the 1980s. Big tours, radio hits, MTV, "the big time" all came with that. Carl then went on to perform with some of Canada’s most iconic bands. Two different hitches as lead singer of the Guess Who bookended a four-year stint playing with April Wine.  In 2008 Carl’s life was nearly cut short. He barely survived a shocking head on car accident in Australia while on a break from touring with The Guess Who. 

Despite over 50 injuries, titanium implants and traumatic brain injury Carl sings and plays with more heart than ever.

His remarkable comeback and adjustment to life post-accident has seen Carl become an inspirational speaker to corporations across Canada and the USA. In 2016, for two special shows, he attained his post-accident goal of rejoining The Guess Who. He is rightly described as a man of titanium, rock and soul. He shares his gripping and amusing stories from a life on the road in a unique theatre event of music, song and stories.

The Sanderson Centre and the James Hillier Foundation present An Evening With Dr. Jane Goodall

Thu Sep 27 7:00 PM

Dr. Jane Goodall first set foot in what is now known as Gombe Stream National Park in 1960 when she launched her pioneering research with wild chimpanzees. She was only 26 years old. Her research project was unlike any other and has taught us so much about our closest cousins in the animal kingdom. In 1977, Jane founded the Jane Goodall Institute, which continues to support the research at Gombe.  In 1991, after meeting with a group of Tanzanian teenagers to discuss community problems, Jane created Roots & Shoots.  This program is dedicated to inspiring and supporting young people to take action for sustainable communities. Roots & Shoots groups are active in nearly 100 countries with approximately 150,000 youth participating.
