Hybrid Forward Festival 2021 is all about the transformation of society through digitization in the creative scene. It raises questions about the virtualization of our lives and our work, especially during the “new normal”. Forward Festival wants to be an eye opener to the striking aspects of digitization – applied to design, creativity and communication.
Wellington, New Zealand
After a year in which our global systems, cultures and traditions were upended, Semi Permanent is embracing this spirit of change and evolution and will host the New Zealand edition of our creativity and design festival exclusively in the country’s capital this October. A city defined by creative community and undergoing considerable rejuvenation, Wellington makes for the perfect home for Semi Permanent’s redesigned event, one with renewed perspectives and greater opportunities for connection and engagement.
Following an immensely transformative year, Semi Permanent returns to its Sydney home for our leading festival of business, design and creativity. Curated around the theme ‘BRIDGES’, the redesigned multi-day event seeks to assess this new reality, putting audiences at the centre of whatever comes next.
