From January 16 to May 31, 2016, TELUS Spark will play host to the fascinating exhibition BODY WORLDS Vital. The exhibition, a collection of real human specimens including full body plastinates, organs and body slices, encourages visitors to explore human anatomy, physiology and health.
BODY WORLDS Vital’s fusion of science, art and culture sparks visitors to examine their own personal health and wellness by considering how individual behaviours affect the body.
BODY WORLDS Vital celebrates the living human body in its optimal state: healthy, vigorous and in motion. TELUS Spark offers a rich multi-faceted experience that will fascinate as well as educate. Included in the BODY WORLDS Vital exhibition are over 200 specimens, including full body, organs and transparent body slices.
As an organization that focuses on preventative health, this exhibition reinforces the work of Preventous Collaborative Health in putting the individual in control of his/her own health. BODY WORLDS Vital tells the compelling story of the link between lifestyle choices and some of the most common life-threatening conditions, such as cancer, diabetes and heart disease, and urges visitors to take serious stock of their own health. We anticipate many visitors to the exhibition will be encouraged towards wellness and healthier lifestyles.
