About the Festival

Emerge in the West is a place for artists and communities from Indigenous, refugee and emerging communities to have a voice.

This year, Emerge in the West will comprise four indoor events over a weekend. We encourage the community to talk about what they want for the future of the festival.

Founded in 2011, Emerge is an annual event that triggered the foundation of the African-Australian Small Business Association (AASBA) in 2014 to represent the growing number of African restaurants and cafes in Melbourne’s West.
