Semi Permanent Aotearoa 2022

Semi Permanent Wellington 2022

2022 marks the 20th anniversary of Semi Permanent — a demarcation in the evolution of both our purpose and our organisation. A milestone like this triggers a moment of reflection, imploring us to look back on our achievements and mistakes as the things that helped shape where we are today. It begs us to look forward, too, challenging us to think about where we might be in another 20 years’ time, or at the least where we hope to be. After all, the future is a destination we can only get to by acknowledging where we come from, and deciding what to bring with us and what to leave behind.
