Emergence Creative Festival

25 March 2020 @ 9:00 am - 27 March 2020 @ 5:00 pm


After it’s debut launch in 2012, the Emergence Creative Festival has developed a strong community of creatives in the world of visual art, advertising, media, and music.

This March, the iconic Margaret River region becomes a creative playground for one of the world’s most inspiring “anti-conferences”. Three days of shot-in-the-arm keynotes, hands-on workshops, incredible pop-ups and satellite events, led by a gathering of the best local and international creative professionals in their fields. Whether it’s ideas, inspiration, networking, industry insights or emerging trends you’re after, The Emergence Creative Festival brings it all together in a wild few days.

It’s the perfect way to start your creative year.

The 2020 theme is Human Connection in a Post-Digital World. 

The Digital Revolution peaked over a decade ago.  This is now the age of experience.  But is our digital attachment as consumers and businesses, detaching us from the human experience? In a world of A.I. drones, deepfakes and the deep web, how much do brands & organisations value tangible human connection and how do they foster it?

Emergence keynotes will share their journeys and experiences, exploring how they – and we –  can harness the benefits of new tech, dodge the pitfalls and connect as people in a post-digital landscape.

A Snippet of Speakers Announced:

Briony Benjamin and Clare Gerber from The Social Parade. These viral video queens create original and branded content that reaches millions – with the audience at the centre of it all.
