Semi-Permanent, the international festival for creatives, returns to Auckland on 31 May for its annual two-day exploration into the minds of our world’s most cutting edge creative artists and design thinkers.
The 2013 line-up includes renowned speakers from Digital Kitchen, the US agency that developed Stanley Piano – the world’s first interactive piano – and won Emmy awards for their main title work on True Blood, Dexter and Six Feet Under.
They will be in the fine company of US production designer Annie Sperling, photographer David LaChapelle’s art director. Sperling is involved with community mural projects throughout Los Angeles reflecting city landmarks, heroes and cultural diversity, and her painting and photography explore the world of burlesque and live theatre which she is also involved.
Others on the speaking agenda include Curious Films Founder Darryl Ward, surf magazine Stab’s creator, Sam McIntosh, Rodney Eggleston of March Studios, and Berlin animator and engineer, Niklas Roy. Ex pat illustrator Kelly Thompson, and Michael Lugmayr, founder of TOKO will also present.
Ticket holders can also expect inspiring and thought provoking workshops, exhibitions, installations and live art.
The Auckland show returns after a decade of hosting 250,000-plus people at 33 events in five countries, including sell-out shows in New York, London, Hong Kong, Wellington and Perth. For the first time this month, the event organisers unveiled the event’s new brand to an outstanding attendance in Portland USA. Los Angeles is next-up.
