In 2019 Semi Permanent will be tackling the theme of TRUTH: how to wield it, how to overcome those who seek to blur it, and if it’s even a necessary ingredient on the path to success, exploring how designers can shape and authenticate the future they believe in. What does the truth mean beyond our immediate environment? How might we scale the power of design to a truly global level? How can we overcome those forces that seek to blur the line between certainty and truth? Speakers include, CJ Hendry, Michel Gondry, Tom Armstrong (The New York Times) and more.
