What is Elevate?


Elevate is a grassroots team of cultural animators who produce pop up projects and events in the Comox Valley. We are focused on boundary pushing and community building initiatives that break down the barriers between culture creators and culture consumers.

Elevate uses art and culture as a vehicle to explore our relationship with the “commons” and to animate spaces we hold in common for the benefit of the broadest community. We are interested experimentation, innovation, exploration and radical and respectful collaboration between organizations, business, individuals, venues and others.

In addition to the Elevate Arts Festival (June 1-4, 2016), elevate produces the Elevate Winter Bazaar, Cumberland Market Day and myriad pop up events. We also partner with arts and business organizations to provide a variety of production support services.
