On Wednesday 24 October I’ll be part of a panel presenting and discussing this topic. My talk will be looking at the community of named student flats in Dunedin.
If you’d like a taster, here’s a selection of images I’ll be showing as part of the presentation which is entitled: a unique community in the north end of Dunedin: 80 years in 10 minutes.

…and now I’ve listened to the original version a few dozen times in a row.
PK 5 went really well, heaps of fun with some incredibly interesting and amusing speakers. Lots of laughter and applause, chocolate and Emmerson’s beer – it was terrific.
Thankfully I was on before the The Dust Palace, a burlesque group. G-strings and shaving cream would have been a hard act to follow.
A recording should be posted on the International Pecha Kucha site soon.
