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.

As a community who experienced some pretty scary fires back in 2011 (pictured) our hearts go out to everyone in Australia affected by the recent and current bushfires happening across the country. There are no words to express the devastation that so many communities are experiencing right now, but it is extremely humbling to see the entire country come together at this time, with such generosity and support for each other (from far and wide) to do what they can to raise money, donating their time and offering other means of support. Our little community of Margaret River have a number of initiatives happening at the moment to raise funds for the various organisations who are providing funds and support to those affected, so if you’re in the area, like us, please support them in any way you can (check our stories for a bunch of these initiatives – this is by no means the complete list! Please tag any others you know of) ...
