This March, the iconic Margaret River region becomes a creative playground for one of the world’s most inspiring “anti-conferences”. 3 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.

Each year marketers, content-makers, innovators, futurists, leaders and artists across music, film, advertising, photography, digital, experiential and visual arts come to Emergence to collaborate and share knowledge in a unique brains trust.  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.

2020 theme:
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?

Our 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.
