In light of the prolonged lockdown occurring throughout New South Wales, Semi Permanent Sydney has announced new dates for this year’s festival.

It will now take place between 17-19 November 2021 at Carriageworks.

“Our mission, always, is to craft the best and most valuable experience for both our speakers and audience, and to ensure the event is as inclusive and dynamic as possible,” says Murray Bell, founder and executive creative director of Semi Permanent.

“Semi Permanent Sydney will this year be a true end-of-year celebration of the talent and ideas in our hometown of Australia and beyond. COVID may have presented many challenges to the nature of live events, but we are energised to create our best festival yet, and having you all there is key to that.”

While the existing lineup of speakers still remains — including Industrial Light & Magic’s Luke Hetherington, Future Minds Lab’s Joel Pearson, Harper Collins’ Mark Campbell, ACMI’s Seb Chan, as well as performer and creative director Ta-ku, film director Gracie Otto and artist and director Del Kathryn Barton — Semi Permanent has as yet an array of headline talent to be revealed over the coming months, as well as a raft of creative business entrepreneurs that will form part of the popular Future State panel discussions.

Ahead of the Sydney event in November, Semi Permanent will host its first event in the Middle East, in Abu Dhabi, this October, with talent including Grammy- and Oscar-winning record producer and songwriter Mark Ronson, objects designer Sabine Marcelis, artist Tom Sachs, and New York bar and restaurant The Flower Shop.

Later that month, the New Zealand edition of the event will take place in Wellington, with talks, performances, workshops and more experiences by designer and innovator Bruce Mau, boundary-pushing “art-chitect” James Yeha Brown, master type designer Kris Sowersby, filmmaker Briar Grace-Smith, photographer Liz Ham, and HOTA director Tracy Cooper-Lavery.
