The New Cool?


Dowse Gallery in Lower Hutt Wellington has a well earned reputation of focussing on art , design and culture sometimes missing from other galleries in New Zealand. There new interactive exhibition ‘ The New Cool ‘ is no different.
The exhibition pays homage to a new generation of New Zealand business people , people that are often referred to as slackers by older generations - New Zealand's Youth. Young New Zealander’s have founded businesses in print media , interactive , fashion, music and television producing resulting in successful and innovative businesses that are earning kudos at home and abroad.
Following 12 youth driven companies , ‘ The New Cool ’ tells inspirational stories of small beginnings , big ideas and success whilst allowing the included companies to show there wares and there business concepts to potential new audiences.
And for those of us who have big dreams of our own , the exhibition is accompanied by a series of free saturday seminars giving visitors the opportunity to meet the directors of some of The New Cool companies and learn from there triumphs and mistakes. Be in quick though as the places will fill up fast!
