Brought to New Zealand for the first time by the University of Auckland, Raising the Bar is a worldwide initiative to bring knowledge to a city’s nightlife. The event will feature 20 talks at 10 inner-city Auckland bars by top University of Auckland academics. Topics range from how to teach kids about terrorism to how to build pop songs. Similar events have already been held in New York, Hong Kong, London and Melbourne. Registrations for this unique event open on July 20 and the public are urged to get in early to secure a bar stool at one or more of the venues. Visit http://www.rtbevent.com/auckland to sign up for news and updates including a link to registrations once they open.
