Augusta Margaret River Shire.


The Shire of Augusta Margaret River is proud to support the highly successful Emergence Creative Festival for a fifth consecutive year, reflecting its strong commitment to supporting the Arts. This drawcard event is an accessible opportunity for local creatives to learn from and collaborate with fellow participants and high calibre national and international presenters. It also ensures the development of the local creative talent pool, supports growth in the culture and arts sector, and reiterates the position of the Margaret River Region as a creative hub. The 2017 event also sees the continuation of the Shire’s Emergence Creative Festival scholarship with this year the program expanded to include two places for local talents. We wish these scholarship recipients and their fellow festival participants a highly enjoyable experience and the best of luck with their future endeavours..
