Dates for the 2017 Emergence Creative Festival and Conference held in Margaret River have been officially announced as Wednesday 29th March through to Saturday 1st April 2017, with Early Bird Tickets released today.

The festival, which spans four days in the Margaret River Region, promises it’s best program and speaker line-up yet to celebrate its fifth anniversary.

“We’re always aiming to push the boundaries with this festival and we’re excited about our 2017 program which includes a world-class conference.” Said Festival Chairman Mat Lewis.

“We had some incredible outcomes from this year’s festival from participants, speakers, the community and stakeholders and we’re ensuring that we can continue to inspire, create and lend a platform for cross-pollination of ideas and industries.”

Emergence Creative Festival is where renowned creative thinkers share stories and inspire others in creative fields. Thought leaders become a part of our community and work alongside attendees in hands-on workshops, with the aim to create live and collaborate with creatives from all different backgrounds.

All of this happens away from the bustle of life, in beautiful Margaret River. Emergence is loved by every kind of creative – from ad execs and big brand MD’s to emerging and established artists from every industry.

The collaborations have already begun, with the Emergence 2017 Branding Collaboration again featuring six artists: Ian Mutch, Aidan Lee Smith, Chloe Wilder, David Spencer, Dave Wolfy and Troy Bennell. Each artist’s final piece was cut into multiple pieces and pieced back together as a final artwork. You can see the process of the branding taking place here.

Speaker and Program announcements for Emergence Creative Festival 2017 will take place at the Perth Launch during the WAMFest (West Australian Music Festival) on Friday 4th November at Fridays Studio with a lineup of local South West bands and artists.

Early Bird Tickets are a discounted ticket price available for a limited time. The AAA and Conference Only Passes are available for Early Bird purchase.
