Semi Permanent 2023

Find Iffy Is — at the Semi Permanent Art + Design Fair! Semi Permanent is a creative experience company, best known for hosting annual design festivals (and their iconic tote bags). In 2023, expect three days of inspiring keynote talks, panel discussions, workshops, exhibitions, and more. The breadth of this year’s program is reflective of creative practice in 2023. 

The Art & Design Fair, powered by Squarespace, will take place on Thursday 9th and Friday 10th November 2023 at St James Theatre, Pōneke Wellington. Curated by Semi Permanent as part of its flagship Festival of Creativity & Design taking place across the same dates, the fair is a celebration of visual design practice and provides a platform for a broad range of creators to showcase their wares to the Aotearoa creative community.

We're very excited to be participating in the inaugural Aotearoa New Zealand edition of the Fair, alongside our favourite publishers. Our stall will offer books, magazines, publications, and experimental projects, showcasing varied print legacies.
