Emergence Creative Festival 2015

Emergence Creative Festival 2015 230x300 1

Emergence Creative 2015 explores the notion of Connection through Creativity via transmedia storytelling and the collaboration between each of the creative industries to forge a stronger path and more meaningful messages.

The Festival turns the iconic Margaret River region into a Creative Playground, bringing together like-minded creatives from across the globe for a four day sensory overload.

Dubbed the ‘anti-conference’, Australia’s South West’s own idea’s fest is an influential celebration of creativity where ideas get off the ground.

Emergence Creative runs from Sunday 8th to Wednesday 11th March.

Tuesday 10th – Thursday 12th:

Join us at JahRoc Galleries for:


The 2013 and 2014 Emergence Creative Conferences in Margaret River were about design, creativity and innovation; and mainly focused on digital, image, sound, art, advertising, media.

In 2015 JahRoc is linking with Ferart to expand the vision of Emergence to extend into design and making within the physical world, hence the title 3DQ.


  • For makers and designers working in the physical world

3 Questions

  • How do we create an internationally recognised Margaret River design style’ We did it with wine, how do we do it with things’
  •  How do makers market and run a successful business at the end of the world, with a high dollar and very distant markets’
  •  What is the future of design-based making’ How do makers change from craft into design based making’

 3DQ Exhibition will showcase 5 local artists in a range of fields, including surfboard making, electric car technology and chocolate making. Also included is our own – Jah-Roc Furniture.
