Semi Permanent Conference Melbourne 2011
I'm really excited as Semi-Permanent Conference is coming to Melbourne again on 23rd and 24th September 2011.
The main reason I'm going? To get inspired by all the awesome speakers and the opportunity to connect with like-minded creatives who are attending the conference. Oh, and the event pack which includes the Semi-Permanent book (that all attendees receive) is always really awesome. I remember one year getting a designer qee toy by Parskid made specially for the conference.
Semi-Permanent is a design conference that started in Sydney and has been going for nine years. The speakers come from different disciplines in the design world including film, street art, photography, fashion, animation, illustration, webdesign and more.
This year the speakers include paper engineer Benja Harney, photographer Platon, digital media expert Scott Dadich, artist Kelly Thompson, creative director Kurppa Hosk and advertising agency Droga5.
There really isn't any other conference that I know of in Australia that is quite like it. It is for all creatives- whether you're working at an agency in the industry, a painter, film maker, fashion designer or graphic designer you will take something away from the event that will inspire.
I've been to the Sydney event several times and excited to attend the Melbourne one for the first time. Are you coming along too? Let me know in the comments below as I'm going on my own and would love to meet fellow creatives.
