What is EMERGE: Unknown?

For many soon-to-be graduates, a fear of the unknown can lead to uncertainty in their career prospects. It can be especially daunting for media graduates to imagine how they might fit into an ever-evolving landscape.

On March 25, 2020, we challenge you to enter EMERGE unknown.

Join industry professionals, Guelph-Humber alumni and current students on a journey through the past, present, and future of media as we celebrate the first-ever launch party for the EMERGE Magazine 2020 edition. 

EMERGE: Unknown will be hosted at the brand new Barrett Centre for Technology Innovation at the Humber College North campus. It will feature exciting giveaways, light refreshments, immersive activations, insightful TEDTalk-style speeches from GH alumni, and opportunities to network with industry professionals. Did we mention our event will be sustainable and as close to almost zero waste as possible? Tickets will be digital and all event details will be sent to guests via email.

This year’s magazine theme, The Tipping Point, explores the rapid transformation of media within the context of the past, present, and future and how small, seemingly unrelated changes can create monumental changes. This event will encourage these aspiring professionals to step into the unknown and give them the confidence to say “I am the future of media”.

Activations include a visual showcase where student work will be displayed, interactions with Pepper, Humber College’s very own robot, VR experiences, and more! 

Are you the future of media? Find out for yourself and head to the link in our bio for free tickets! This is a paperless event. All event details will be sent to guests via email.

All guests will receive a free copy of the never-before-seen EMERGE 2020 Magazine and the first 50 guests will receive swag bags.
