University of New England

UNE bring smart ideas to life with a program that fuses technology with music, art with science, and food with fun.

Eats

MasterChef 2017 contestant Callan Smith presents his Culinary Circus pop-up with exciting desserts full of surprise.

Smart ideas come to Life at UNE… event some that just shouldn't work.

Callan Smith uses a combination of science and food to transport eaters into the future, a world where the sky is the limit and boundaries stop no one. Expect explosions of sweet and savoury all frozen down with a generous helping of liquid nitrogen and a bubble or two. Callan's infamous Sushi for Dessert is exclusively being served at Parramatta Lanes, or how about a Crispy Chicken Fruit Salad? Let Callan’s culinary genius change everything you thought you knew about food and flavours.   

Beats

The historic post office site will overflow with music performances from UNE staff, students and special guests including Symphony for Life, Blush Opera, All Girl Electronica, Drumfill Percussion and the Grooveyard Jazz Trio. Every night from 5:30pm performances will take place across multiple stages with acoustic performances, electronic music, opera, folk music, jazz fusion, and musical theatre on show.

Food, Mood and the Microscape

Enter the microscopic world of UNE scientists and let their beautiful ‘microscapes’, or microscopic landscapes, take you on a journey.  As food travels through the body and is digested, it has an impact on our internal organs and a spectrum of cells. Fluorescent microscopy shows the range of effects that food, stimulants and mood have on our bodies.  The ethereal images follow neuron motor cells, the vastness of a transverse spinal cord and the tree-like structures of nerves, and finally, the other vital systems of the body being skin, muscle, bone and blood, showing where the nutrients from our food goes and the huge contrast between different structures within the body.
