For 16 years, Semi Permanent has brought the best global design talent to local shores to share thought-provoking, inspirational and often very personal insights about what it means to practice design at the highest levels. This 'year's festival sees an exciting line-up of accomplished speakers hand-picked to inspire and motivate with their knowledge and experiences from all areas of design, from art, graphic design and film to music and photography, and from advertising and illustration to new wave publishing, poetry, product design and architecture.

Semi Permanent speakers are design leaders, philosophers and change makers. They are technological wunderkind and life-long innovators with stellar careers and incredible stories to tell. If they have anything in common, it is that they have never stopped learning, never stopped dreaming, and never stopped making.

This year, Semi Permanent Auckland will again be held in tandem with the Future of the Future – and event specifically tailored to meet the needs and interests of New Zealand businesses negotiating the fast-paced and fast-changing world of technology and innovation. Future of the Future is a definitive, highly informed business briefing led by influential decision makers at the 'world's game-changing companies.
