Save the date: Emergence Creative Festival will return to the Margaret River region from 24 to 26 March 2021.
Across three nights and two days, some of the world’s most innovative minds and acclaimed speakers will share their latest revelations, inspiring delegates to tap into new ideas and skills in a series of talks and hands-on workshops.
Emergence Creative Founder and Manager Trade, Tourism, Innovation & Creative Industries at the South West Development Commission, Mat Lewis, says that the ‘anti-conference’ couldn’t come at a better time.
“The year has forced us to have a break between creative festivals and we’re thrilled to confirm Emergence Creative 2021 - the withdrawals have kicked in and it gives us all something to look forward to,” Mat says.
“Emergence Creative is on track to re-congregate the creative community. We’ll engage and inspire our local and global attendees with a creative mindset – and let’s face it, with the year we’ve just had, it’s never been more important.
“Ideas can turn a business around, spark the next big thing, or be the catalyst for opportunities. And for that to happen, we need space – space in our minds and space in our surrounds, which is why Margaret River is the perfect host destination.
“It’s not all work, play is just as important and there’s no better place to play than in a beautiful wine region by a stunning coastline.”
Now in its seventh year, Emergence Creative is the festival for people in the know: an immersive anti-conference fusing culture with creative thinking, described as “the biggest shot in the arm you’ve ever had”.
Choose from either The Whole Shebang pass ($605 + 2.5% booking fee & 50c) for unlimited access to all areas of the conference, including opening night, satellite events and workshops (and maximum time to network with the creative keynotes) or a Business Time pass ($385 + 2.5% booking fee + 50c), which is suitable for those who can only want to attend the conference.
There will be individual workshop passes, satellite event tickets and content only passes available early in 2021.
