ConversatioNZ Symposium, Taste of Auckland, 20th November 2016

As the new ConversatioNZ co-ordinator my first order of business is to help organise this day of TedX style talks about New Zealand food. The theme for the day will be 'Why Kai? What is unique about NZ Food and what is our place in the world?'

Tickets are on sale now and include entry into Taste of Auckland on the Sunday. We'd love to see you there!
