semi-permanent is here

Semi-Permanent Creative Conference   Words by Steven Fernandez. Creatives unite! The highly anticipated Semi-Permanent creative conference is upon us and this year’s annual event in Auckland is shaping up to be it’s best yet! Every year Semi-Permanent brings the best and brightest in both local and international creative talent to the stage at Auckland’s Aotea Centre for audiences to be inspired and intrigued. This year’s series of conferences, exhibitions, workshops and side events is no different, with an incredible line-up listed below! New Zealand Semi-Permanent Director Simon Velvin says the key to the event’s success is having a healthy mix of artists across various industries. “Every year we try and blend a unique mix of creatives across all disciplines so that audiences can learn and be inspired by a wide range of experts. More often people get more out of hearing from other creative fields,” he says. “Things don’t happen unless you put them into play.  Semi-Permanent Auckland is 1600 enthusiastic creatives from all over the world coming together. Bound to be some interesting collisions! Thoughts become things!” If you’re interested in hearing the huge host of speakers at this year’s Semi-Permanent creative conference, then head over to buy tickets.
