"The beating heart of a creative can only be fed by curiosity, and expression – through the act of creation itself. At times, the beat can be drowned out by the noise of 'busy'. It's incredibly rare to find a serene place in the world that hosts a cross between a creative conference and a creative retreat to recalibrate. I came to the Emergence Creative Festival to share the power of putting people over profit. To my delight, I was gifted in exchange by an awakening; inspired and recharged by all types of creatives from all over the world."
