Bring your conference or event to this award-winning, architecturally designed building - purpose-built, flexible venue spaces which are sited around an attractive enclosed outdoor courtyard.
The Dowse Art Museum is a contemporary art museum that presents a diverse exhibition programme of local, national and international artists and designers.
Well established as one of New Zealand's leading creative hubs, it celebrates creativity across a range of arts disciplines.
The venue spaces have been designed to reflect the gallery's strong commitment to creative thinking and solution-finding. They can be configured in a range of ways to cater for anything from a staff workshop for 20, a formal lecture theatre for 80 or a 120-seat dining/reception area.
The Dowse has a fantastic onsite cafe and catering is available on request. It is liquor-licensed and audio visual equipment is available. All functions and facilities can be tailored to individual requirements. Pay and display parking is available for easy accessibility and a regular, direct bus service from downtown Wellington stops nearby. Disabled access to all public spaces.
