Emergence Creative Festival

Paid Event

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 June, 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.

Brian Ritchie, Music Curator at MONA (Museum of Old and New Art, Hobart), organiser of MONA FOMA, and bass guitarist for post-punk band Violent Femmes, will be delivering a keynote about the Japanese concept of Ma, or negative space.

Joining Ritchie is the immensely talented couple Grace Lam and Jason Capobianco who will share their creativity survival guide.

Australian researcher for Human Rights Watch and award-winning journalist Sophie McNeill is known for her investigative stories in Asia and the Middle East aired on ABC’s Four Corners and Foreign Correspondent and SBS’s Dateline. McNeill will present a keynote based on her book, “We Can’t Say We Didn’t Know: Dispatches from an Age of Impunity”.

There are more than 25 creative thinkers presenting and leading workshops at Emergence Creative, with a mission to reinvigorate original thinking, complemented by the event’s social program, creating the space for ideas to flow.

Tickets are on sale now. For more information, visit emergencecreative.com
