Our story



In the summer of 2015, Emma and Becky found themselves sat side by side at a friend’s dinner table. Conversations unfolded as friends shared food and it was here that the two met with a vision for bringing community together and inspiring individuals to go after their dreams and collaborate with others in the process. 

Yonder Collective is a creative initiative that invites individuals to gather, share conversations and ideas over food and build foundations for community. Through collaborative events and workshops hosted in stunning locations, we seek to provoke conversation, cultivate curiosity and ignite inspiration. Each event has a unique theme featuring chosen artisans in food, styling, photography and other ventures hosted with and by local businesses. 

Excellence is in the detail of every event hosted. We look to create the most conducive space for inspiration from the people you meet, brands we collaborate with and spacial aesthetic guided by our carefully designed theme.

Community is the cornerstone of Yonder and we believe this is built most naturally when gathered around a table. At the table you will find sparking conversations with like minded people centred around a themed exquisite meal.

Join us at an event, with a friend, solo or as a group, we'd love to have you there!

Emma sees a problem, a missing link and her first thought is "how can I fix it?" YONDER came from that very question. You will likely find her in a cafe dreaming up the next way to change the world.
