Though the term semi-permanent makes me think about my bad hair dye choices over the last month (pink is reserved for panthers and the Queen of the Desert I have since learnt), for the more design-inclined it is synonymous with networking, inspiration and a life-long love of all things creative.
Semi-Permanent is coming back to Melbourne for its annual two day appearance over October 25th and 26th. This year marks the fifth round of Semi-Permanent in Melbourne and, yet again, they've rounded up some of the world's most exciting creative professionals to run lectures, workshops, live events and, of course, after parties. This year, there's an astounding line-up of people at the top of their game: Nicholas Felton (who designed Facebook Timeline), Julian Frost (the animator/illustrator who brought us the Metro Trains super cute Dumb Ways to Die critters), Thomas Williams (of MADE Quarterly magazine and Hunt&Co.), Miso (cult Melbourne street artist), and multidisciplinary maverick Ant Keogh (who is responsible for THIS) – and that's just for starters.
Semi-Permanent is a must see for anyone who considers themself creative, from students who want to see where their art will take them, to established industry giants who simply want to talk business with others at the top of their game. To grab a ticket, jump on the website here, but you've got to be quick because today is your last chance to grab a discounted early bird ticket.
There are also a bunch of of free associated events around Melbourne during Semi-Permanent, so follow them on social media to stay in the loop.
AND GUESS WHAT? WE HAVE A TWO-DAY DOUBLE PASS TO GIVE AWAY! ENTER HERE.
October 25th and 26th
