This year from 21 – 24 March, Emergence Creative Festival will turn the Margaret River Region into a creative event of inspiring keynotes, practical workshops, unusual collaborations and incredible satellite events.
Attracting creative professionals from music, film, photography, advertising, digital and the visual arts, the four-day event, now in its sixth year, is described as the ultimate ‘anti-conference’ with early morning surf sessions and the Conference hub being set in a winery.
“This picturesque region provides the perfect setting for guests to collaborate, create and be inspired; share emerging trends and recent developments in their disciplines and network with creatives from all industries,” Emergence Creative Festival event director Erin Molloy says.
“We have an amazing lineup of keynote speakers coming from the US, Japan, UK, Singapore and across Australia to share their insights and experiences.”
The event continues to attract high profile international and national guests and has proved itself through the many business outcomes and creative partnerships formed by the guests.
Confirmed keynote speakers for this year’s event include award-winning video game developer Kimbely Allom; international artist Ian Strange; Co-founder of Working Not Working Justin Gignac; and Google Tokyo Creative Directors Tim Seddon and Gene Brut.
“In the past we’ve turned a cave into a sound studio, we’ve hung a band off a cliff for a photography shoot and we’ve turned the main street of Margaret River into a progressive night of live music, live art and performance all in the name of creative inspiration – so guests can expect all of that and more in 2018!”
