Award-winning Sydney creative collective The Glue Society is expanding to New Zealand, setting up in Wellington with Pete Baker at the helm.

“Having a local base in New Zealand will allow myself and all of us at Glue Society to be better able to collaborate with creative people throughout the country, and better able to make budgets work and productions happen more easily,” Baker told M+AD.

“At its best, the creative work in New Zealand is as good as –if not better than – anywhere in the world. It breaks the rules. And engages audiences in a conversation. Two things we love to do. And we’re really looking forward to making an active contribution to the country’s creative output.”

Baker will be based in Wellington. “But I’ll be working in both NZ and Australia depending on where each project requires me to be,” he told M+AD this morning.

Glue Society co-founder Jonathan Kneebone said: “Pete is one of the longest standing members of our creative group – and his work of late has been second to none. It is an exciting development for us to have him represent us locally in NZ – as well as continuing his work in Australia.”

In Australia and New Zealand, The Glue Society is represented by production companies Revolver (for film direction) and Will O’Rourke (for experiential, content and art projects).

The company also has an office in New York.
