A bigger, badder Semi-Permanent

Semi-Permanent is back with a vengeance this year with its eighth instalment after touring Sydney, Melbourne, Dubai and Singapore, as well as satellite conferences in New York and London.

Kicking of on May 17, Semi-Permanent has expanded to 16 speakers for 2012 covering a deeper range of disciplines.

The two-day conference will present a mash-up of creative minds with the likes of industry heavy-weights Ron English, Industrial Light & Magic, Gmunk, Wallpaper Magazine, Miss Van, Special Group, Three Drunk Monkeys and Alex Trouchet. Three speakers are yet to be finalised.

Local fashion designers Stolen Girlfriends Club will also craft a visual spectacular to take guests to another level.

In addition to the regular run of show, Semi-Permanent will be offering a raft of side events and exhibitions. To awaken the inner creative beast, Semi-Permanent fans can find the highly anticipated Ron English exhibition at Webb’s from May 10th or a discussion with High Res and Resn to talk about the future of the creative digital landscape.
