Global creative platform Semi Permanent celebrates 16 years of pioneering and transformative design with the return of their three-day event on 24, 25 and 26 May at Sydney’s Carriageworks.
Through the lens of 'creative tension as inspiration', this year's event focuses on those moments of positive and negative friction that come before a breakthrough.
In those moments, creative thinkers and doers stand on the precipice of change until we learn what we need to learn to leap into the future and design that experience, solve that brief, arrive at that perfect layout or make that life-changing decision.
