An evening curated by
The focus of Emerge Las Vegas is resilience in a world with too much hatred, prejudice and ignorance. Our primary showcases will feature musicians + speakers grouped into four core themes.
The most compelling protests today are fueled by young citizens who transformed their passion into grassroots action at a scale impacting the establishment. “PROTEST” represents perspectives/performances from BLM, Women’s March, MFOL and beyond to move your soul and ignite your action.
Our screens are filled with images of unattainable body types. It’s easier than ever to self medicate. And we all grapple with demons that suggest we are flawed or unworthy. Performances/perspectives in the “SELF” pillar represent will give attendees the wisdom to weather tragedy, the courage to make bold decisions and the inspiration to accept yourselves and others..
Everyday we see civility break down, unprecedented violence, our climate pillaged and unrelenting attacks on those who are different. Performances/perspectives in “BRAVE” will demonstrate how facing scary topics head on thickens our skin and yields courage to stand against those that divide us with fear.
Everybody loves sex … when it is healthy, consensual and affirming. In other cases, it can be the backdrop for some of the most challenging moments in our lives. Tackling this fundamental juxtaposition, “SEX” will explore sex positivity, LGTBQ’s cultural influence and gender identity, concluding with a tone that is proud, sassy, unapologetic and absolutely fabulous.
All ticket holders are encouraged to immerse more deeply during Emerge, participating in additional experiences wrapped around and within our primary showcases.
