Discourse & Activism

levate Creative Response!

Creative Response is not just the impulse that makes an artist create art, it is also alive within all of us, throughout history, embedded with compassion, our greatest human talent. It is the embrace of emotion and passion, bound together with thoughts and ideas, which operate in the free space between public and private, permitted and prohibited. Creative Response is about embracing imagination to see us connected as one people, which allows us to make everything possible.

The Elevate Festival aims to inspire people and engages in community-building for the growing social movements of our time. The program focuses on new forms of democracy, creative artistic support for migrants, convivial technology, ground-breaking innovations in agriculture and cutting-edge climate justice activism.

Collectively generated creativity, solidarity and courage are the quintessence of Creative Response. Elevate invites you to get active and to participate with the festival´s speakers and artists.
