About the Festival
Multicultural Arts Victoria’s Emerge in Yarra is celebrating 15 years by exploring new futures and new terrain, with a multilayered program of events presented at Schoolhouse Studios, The Melba Spiegeltent and Sawtooth Studio from 18-19 October 2019.
Since its inception in 2004, the festival has taken many forms, at many venues across the City of Yarra, always with the purpose of showcasing artistic & cultural diversity to the wider public.
Reflecting on cultural shifts in the arts landscape, Emerge in Yarra 2019 will instead be a series of dynamic events with a focus on CALD and PoC artists creating spaces to meet, generate new conversations and share their incredible work.
The Melba Spiegeltent will host two not-to-be-missed live music events;
Yeo’s Recovery Channel album preview party a genre bending production of contemporary R&B, pop and electronica.
And VIBE!, an audio-visual feast of some of the freshest new generation hip hop and soul talents featuring Pookie, Good Luck Omen and the Heard Instinct Collective.
