Applications are now open for the Art & Design Fair, a free two-day event running alongside the Semi Permanent Aotearoa Festival of Creativity & Design at Wellington’s St James Theatre (9—10 November 2023).

The Art & Design Fair, powered by Squarespace, aims to bring together a diverse range of local and international publishers, artists and designers to share their print, digital, objects and other matter (including books, magazines, zines, posters, NFT art, literature and more) with an engaged audience of fellow creatives.

Semi Permanent is the biggest and longest-running creativity and design festival in the southern hemisphere. A range of events, including keynote talks, panel discussions and workshops, relating to the practice of art book creation, design and production will additionally be integrated into the Semi Permanent Aotearoa program, with highlights including talks by internationally recognised artists, publishers and graphic designers.

Stallholders will have the chance to display and sell publications and related ephemera directly to attendees, as well as gain the chance to network and enjoy the energy of the Semi Permanent festival.

The Art & Design Fair is free to attend. Stallholder applications for the Art & Design Fair close 30 September. Tickets for the Semi Permanent Aotearoa Festival of Creativity & Design are available now.
