Looking for a(nother) reason to hit the south coast this spring? As if uncrowded beaches and fresh air weren't enough, the spring series by the Institute of Interesting Ideas is also on. This bunch of live conversations featuring healthy-living celebrities is promising to delve into food, wellbeing, sex and death. And every one of them will take place by the sea at The Pavilion Kiama.
If you're a fan of My Kitchen Rules, you'll know the host, Pete Evans, who'll speak on Thursday, October 24, on the Joy of Food. Has your love of a good meal lately been corrupted by confusion around what's healthy and what's not? This is your chance to rediscover it — and eat happily again.
On Friday, November 1, meet Victoria Spence, holistic funeral director and celebrant. Expect to encounter everything you've ever wondered about death, from facing mortality without panicking to managing funeral costs. Following her on Friday, November 1, will be sex therapist Jacqueline Hellyer, who'll tackle another taboo in her chat Sex: the Naked Truth.
And, as summer draws near, it'll be time for Matt Preston, food writer and TV personality. He'll discuss food, food and glorious food – while launching his new book, More — on Thursday, November 21.
The Institute of Interesting Ideas will run from October 24–November 21. To purchase tickets, and for information places to stay and eat in Kiama, head this way.
