Elevate - A Manual for Change

What is “surveillance capitalism” and how can we cook it?
Is the commons society really putting hope into practice?
Are artificial volcanoes going to stop global warming?

Elevate #10 inspires and explores such unpredictable, interconnected questions, helping us creatively respond to a world evolving under crisis. This is the tenth edition of Elevate, an international festival of music, arts and political discourse held every year in Graz, Austria.

We hear from more than forty experienced thinkers, artists and activists, including: Amy Goodman (DemocracyNow!), Antonino D’Ambrosio (Let Fury Have The Hour), John Holloway (Benemérita Universidad Autónoma de Puebla) and Shoshana Zuboff (Harvard Business School).

Whether through Hopeability, Creative Response or L.O.V.E, the message is clear: We all need to Elevate.

What’s in the book?

Over 50,000 words of views and analysis from sociologists, politicians, economists, musicians, film-makers and countless others on everything from the state of our democracy to the state of our farms and our creativity.
