"When Spooning Led to Forking — the evolution of eating utensils"

by Nicole O'Hearne

Ever wondered why the fork looks like it does? Why Europeans always have a utensil in each hand while eating, but Americans like to just use a fork? Why a lot of Asian countries use chopsticks, but the Thai use a fork and spoon?

Nicole is here to explain all this and more! A structural engineer by day but a table setting aficionado by night, her upbringing with etiquette and table setting classes make her uniquely qualified to speak on this topic.

"Everyday Life Behind Bars — how to use a bike for (almost) everything"

by Emily Cambridge

This talk will highlight how life behind this set of bars can actually give you the greatest sense of freedom.

With a background in landscape architecture and urban design, Emily now calls herself a fraudster Landscape Architect, having worked on walking and cycling projects across NZ for over 5 years. Emily is passionate about the humble (and not so humble) bicycle and all that these machines can offer us in our everyday lives.
