Speaker Bios:

April K. Henderson:
Programme Director of Pacific Studies in the Va'aomanū Pasifika unit at Victoria University, April Henderson deals in the lived intersection of cultural heritage and contemporary experience. Her research often involves following the movements of people, things, and ideas in, through, and beyond the Pacific. Her research also contextualises the aspirations of Pacific peoples who move, or are moved by, these transnational flows. For years this work has focused on aspects of hip hop music, dance, and visual art. A more recent project, 'Kernals of Hope: Following Coconut Commodities from the Pacific to the West,' follows a quite different thing- virgin coconut oil - from Pacific nations to metropolitan consumers, illuminating the beliefs, hopes and investments in the product at either end of the supply chain. We're very intrigued, and bet you are too!

Max Rashbrooke:
Inequality is Max Rashbrooke's middle name, inequality in New Zealand to be exact. Both a journalist and author, Max has become one of the country's leading commentators on this serious, pressing issue. He has published three books on the subject, and developed an interactive calculator that helps to put your own experiences in perspective. Max will discuss how little exposure we have of those who lead lives in different socio-economic realities, and the future implications increasing stratification holds for our New Zealand.
