Discourse & Activism

The discourse programme of the Elevate Festival revolves intensively around the festival theme, which is developed anew each year. On five days of the festival, around 50 international guests discuss with the audience and each other, mostly in a very inspiring and barrier-free way. Discussions, workshops, lectures, innovative formats: Around 30 events per festival invite you to join in the discussions and become active - free admission.

The vision of inspiring thousands of visitors with a distinguished programme - and thus presenting Graz internationally as an innovative place for intercultural exchange of ideas, political thinking and the joint discovery of new contemporary art - is a major objective of the organisation team.

Significant cooperations in the field of media (ORF, Kleine Zeitung, FM4, DorfTV,, Radio Helsinki) as well as technological know-how acquired over many years (media channel live streaming, TV productions) should help to communicate the festival themes to a wider audience and enable interactive discussions.
