WAM member discounts for Emergence Creative fest!

1 Mar

Each year, leading professionals from all over the world in the fields of music, film, advertising, digital and the visual arts travel to Margaret River to share recent developments in their disciplines as well as emerging trends in a series of workshops, talks, networking sessions and parties at the innovator’s dream festival, Emergence Creative.

By bringing together creatives from a wide range of areas, the four-day event encourages participants to look beyond their own specialisation and broaden their thinking. To be honest, it’s a pretty difficult festival to describe, as there are a million events to get excited by (of which the below are just a small sampling of, but you can find the full program here), and part of the pleasures are in the discovering of what you may never have imagined interesting in the first place. What we will guarantee, though, is that you’ll leave inspired, refreshed, knowledgeable and ready to create something groundbreaking!

With a plenty of great free events (see more below) and paid workshops, CO~LAB’s and other magical events, the festival runs from Wednesday 16 – Saturday 19 March, 2016. Whilst the festival encourage multi-arts collaboration, there are also a number of incredible opportunities for those wanting to focus on music, and we’ve teamed up with the generous peeps at Emergence Creative to offer three mega discount packages for WAM members, as below:
