This year’s event will include the poignant EMC10 Festival, which is set to run from November 25th until December 15th, in conjunction with the EMC10 Conference taking place on November 30th at the Powerhouse Museum in Ultimo, Sydney.

EMC Director, Jane Slingo highlights
“Reflecting on EMC 2012 – 2022, there have certainly been storms to weather. But I am grateful for many things. The abundance of learnings. The many wonderful people from Australia and the world who have generously shared their knowledge, their experience and their challenges for the benefit of others at EMC. EMC’s supporters who got our vision and backed us over these years.”
“Most of all, the opportunity to have collaborated with so many brilliant people this past decade – wildly talented artists and their courageous teams, inspiring community and industry leaders, those that share the stories about the culture and the people – the writers, marketers and publicists. I’m humble about this milestone, but also really looking forward to celebrating it with EMC’s friends and peers, new and old, at EMC10.”
Guest speaker Helen Marcou AM said:
“For 10 years EMC has delivered a program that is coveted world-wide. Informed, bold and always leading with difficult conversations and meaningful connections.”
Masterclass Host Nyxen said:
“I’m so excited to be involved with EMC for their 10th anniversary. EMC do incredible work in the music industry and I’m honoured to be able to share my knowledge in Live Show creation/ performance using their platform.”
EMC10 is supported by the NSW Government through Create NSW, City of Sydney, Australia Council for the Arts, Roland, Moshtix and Muzeek.
