In order for people to succeed in their own local market, they need to have support from the community. That is why New Zealand artists are always looking to help out one another, no matter what their specialization is in.
The first thing that many people in the country focus on is doing something that incorporates them with the lifestyle that makes them unique. Maybe using the same material found only in New Zealand, or simply making it seemed so that it does not seem like this coming from somewhere else.
Artists are largely under appreciated, and it can be a real struggle for certain people in New Zealand to make a living. By supporting each other, there is a way for everyone to grow and have a little more success in their own niche so that they can start to takeoff.
