Wed 20 November Cultivating your Creative Spark

Jessica Walsh started Ladies, Wine & Design in New York after doing a lot of thinking and reading on why there are so few female Creative Directors. She believes we can create change through mentorship and championing each others' work. As a female led creative company in Auckland, we are inspired by Jessica's global call for open conversations on design with a drop of wine. Auckland has more than it's fair share of exceptionally creative women and it is our hope to bring us all together at Ladies, Wine & Design.

About the hosts:
Dow Goodfolk has been a leading New Zealand design company for more than 25 years, piloted by Annie Dow (Director) and Donna McCort (Creative Director).
