This past March, in the rural beauty of Margaret River in Western Australia, a growing tribe of creatives, entrepreneurs, techies, and all-around thinkers gathered for a three-day event devoted to one of the twenty-first century’s most enlightened trends: collaboration. In an age where the flow of ideas is limited only by bandwidth, we’re seeing brands partner with artists and activists, mindfulness embraced by capitalism, trends moving between public and private sectors, and digitally-driven changes in consciousness.
Emergence Creative Festival is a celebration of this increasingly interconnected world. Featuring speakers like the artist Ian Strange, who literally burned down the suburbs, the folk singer Lucy Peach, who’s showing the world that the menstrual cycle is a period not a sentence, and Tim and Gene, the Creative Directors of Google Japan who have melded their personalities into a single, high-level creative organism, Emergence Creative Festival created a space for positive problem solving to flourish.
And flourish it did.
