Just as New Zealand sees the first sunrise of the day, so too has it been a testing ground for new ideas and restless minds. Semi Permanent Auckland will act as a North Star for those in creativity and business, offering a glimpse into the future of work and valuable lessons in self-preservation as it happens.

In 2020 we'll be bringing a lineup that crosses design, art, technology, fashion, music, architecture and more spread across a variety of large and intimate experiences.

Our 2020 theme is RESTLESS.

We live in a time of unparalleled transformation, but the challenges posed by this rate of change are unsolvable by traditional processes and ideas. We need restless individuals, restless cities and restless ideas to make up the difference. Put simply, there is no time for anything less.
