Technology is evolving at a pace never seen before, but its most successful applications remain powered by human innovation. Never Permanent is a one-of-a-kind talks program that celebrates and explores the rich intersection of creativity and technology now – a timely reminder to embrace and leverage new technologies as a means of advancing our artistic vision rather than usurping it.
From the creators of acclaimed design festival Semi Permanent and in partnership with Now or Never, Melbourne/Naarm’s most exciting new festival, Never Permanent is a full-day program of keynote talks and panel discussions. Featuring a curated selection of boundary-pushing artists, photographers, filmmakers, musicians, designers, and technologists, Never Permanent is equal parts inspiration and education. It presents a unique opportunity to learn from the world’s best, level up your creative skillset, discover new approaches to creative and technological mediums, and connect with over 1,000 likeminded attendees. As Semi Permanent’s first event in Melbourne in over a decade, you won’t want to miss the inaugural edition of Never Permanent.
