Men's Mental Health Week with one of the DOA

This year's Men’s Mental Health week, we want to share some words from one of the J’s that make up the creative and cheeky company Department of Arts, Jules! As well as running a company with his 2 best friends, Jules is one of most high-energy Drum and Bass MC’s to come out of New Zealand. He is proud to share his journey with well-being and the importance of mental health in a male dominated industry.

Can we get a little bit of a background story? Where are you from? Can you tell us a bit about DOA and what you do?

Gisborne born and bred, Waikato varsity educated, and one time non-travelling reserve for the NZ U18 Surf team. At the Department of Arts we have turned our joy for merry making and mischief management into full-time employment and a lot of anxiety inducing overheads. We are proud to be A to Z service for Design, Fabrication, and Installation.
