Our 2020 Theme Video

Far from its pejorative implications, restlessness is an unease to be embraced. It's the call of the wild. The potential of the unknown. It's the difference between blending in or standing out. It's your impact to the communities around you.

Being restless is the first step to self-fulfilment if you allow it to be, and at each Semi Permanent event across 2020 you'll hear from designers who had no choice but to take bold risks; companies that are pushing the needle towardas the common good; to help you carve your own path.
