Sydney's restless obsession to earn its place in the world has created a self-fulfilling cycle of creative unconformity; mostly fun, sometime’s serious, never boring. As the home of Semi Permanent, our flagship Sydney event will provide a blueprint, colour palette and action plan for harnessing this insatiable desire for excellence through a diverse range of lessons from across the creative spectrum.
Between May 21-23, Semi Permanent will return with a lineup canvassing design, art, technology, fashion, music, film, video games, architecture and more, spread across a variety of experiences both massive and intimate.
We'll announce our speakers on January 28, when tickets will simultaneously go on sale. Make sure you join the mailing list — maybe you will get a nice surprise.
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.
