There’ll be loads of workshops, performances, installations and discussions. Oh – and published folks can sign up to sell their stuff at a new book fair.

Sydney folks: Semi Permanent, the longest-running creativity and design festival in the southern hemisphere, is celebrating its 20th anniversary in its hometown this year. Taking place as part of Vivid Sydney at arts precinct Carriageworks from May 25–27, the event features a huge line-up of super-talented folks in creativity, technology and design (which you can spy over here).

This year the festival is also launching the Permanent Art Book Fair. Publishers, artists and designers are invited to share their printed and digital offerings, including books, magazines, zines, posters, NFT art, literature and more by hosting a stall at the fair.

Festival founder Murray Bell promises the event’s 20th birthday program “reflects the breadth, scope and excitement of the creative and design industries today” and will give us all the hefty dose of shared in-person experiences that we’re craving. Sound good? Good. Should you wish to get amongst the celebrations, you can snap up a ticket over here and apply to host a stall at the Permanent Art Book Fair over here.
