THE INTERSECTION OF SOCIAL JUSTICE, ART AND MUSIC

Emerge is a community rooted in an annual gathering where inspired change makers are informed and entertained through programming that moves them closer to meaning or involvement.

Join us in Las Vegas, for two days of exploration through live music, passionate storytelling, progressive art, crafted parties and immersive experiences.

THE EXPERIENCE

What is Emerge? Conceptually, Emerge is the intersection of social justice, art and music. In practice, Emerge is a community rooted in an annual gathering where inspired change makers are informed and entertained through programming that moves them closer to meaning or involvement. The constructive conversations that begin at Emerge then permeate, grow and evolve within the community the rest of the year.

What is the Emerge format? Two days of interdisciplinary exploration through live music, passionate storytelling, progressive art, crafted parties and immersive experiences.

What does the Emerge community value? Diversity and accessibility over prestige and affluence. Translating social awareness into social action. Celebrating human equality. Unconventional heroism. Youth involvement. Artistic energy. A shared vision for a better world.

What will define Emerge Las Vegas? The world is scary. Rather than regress to apathy or escapism, the focus of Emerge Las Vegas is resilience in a world with too much hatred, prejudice and ignorance. We will bring this focus to life in Las Vegas through both our primary showcases and additional experiences.

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.”
-Margaret Mead

Primary Showcases will feature musicians + speakers grouped into three core themes – PROTEST, BRAVE and SEX/SELF. There is no overlap in programming, so attendees need not pick and choose.

Crafted Collisions are additional experiences that encourage attendees to immerse more deeply during Emerge, participating in extension events wrapped around and within our primary showcases.

ESCAPING THE ECHO CHAMBER | HOW EMERGE CAME TO LAS VEGAS

SEARCHING FOR COMMUNITY | Where can we take risks on music we’ve never heard? Where can we willfully challenge our worldview? Where do we go to imagine a better world and plan our next move?

EVALUATING OUR OPTIONS | We went to the festivals. We listened to the podcasts. We refreshed our Twitter feeds. Something was missing … a gathering space for people who want to shatter the status quo.

BUILDING EMERGE |  A gathering rooted in new music, new ideas and a non-stop celebration of everything that makes you unique. Discover your newest passion, meet your next collaborator and populate next year’s playlist.

RETHINKING LAS VEGAS | Las Vegas has always been known as one of the world’s creative hubs for the entertainment community. In recent years, it’s also become known as a battleground community, a political locale of focus during each election cycle. We’ve made Las Vegas our home base because of its diverse, passionate local community and the representation of minority interests we highlight on our program throughout the city. Come experience a different side of Las Vegas with Emerge.

GOING BEYOND CONCERTS | Emerge’s showcases combine music, art, and speaking to highlight the unique perspectives making a big impact in our world. Get up close with those who think and act.

INTEGRATING MUSIC & IDEAS |  We’ve curated rising artists, thinkers, and change-makers that will influence their respective genres and fields for years to come.

CREATING AN ATMOSPHERE OF DISCOVERY | Wander into any Emerge showcase and you’re guaranteed to encounter something new and provocative. Plan out your own custom experience beforehand…or wing it. It works either way.
