Creativity is one of those things that happens when you least expect it, and at times never happens when you need it the most. Boost your creativity with a trip to Margaret River for the Emergence Creative Festival held from 9 June 2021 to 11 June 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.

Described as an ‘anti-conference’ Emergence Creative aims to inspire attendees, stimulate a creative mindset, spark ideas or the next big thing, and possibly be the catalyst for opportunities. To get creativity flowing, we need space – space in our minds and space in our surrounds, making the Margaret River wine region the perfect host destination.

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”.

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.”
