Semi Permanent, New Zealand’s most prestigious, popular and influential creative festival, is back in Auckland in 2019 to once again pull community together, shape ideas and celebrate the power of good design to change and influence the world around us.
For 16 years Semi Permanent has brought the best global design talent to local shores to share thought-provoking, inspirational and often very personal insights about what it means to practice design at the highest levels. This year’s festival sees an exciting line-up of accomplished speakers hand-picked to inspire and motivate with their knowledge and experiences from all areas of design, from art, graphic design and film to music and photography, and from advertising and illustration to new wave publishing, poetry, product design and architecture.
This year, Semi Permanent Auckland will again be held in tandem with the Future of the Future—and event specifically tailored to meet the needs and interests of New Zealand businesses negotiating the fast-paced and fast-changing world of technology and innovation. Future of the Future is a definitive, highly informed business briefing led by influential decision makers at the world’s game-changing companies, such as Google, instagram, Microsoft, Kickstarter, and Airbnb.
