Elevate the Arts is a grass roots, multi-disciplinary, non profit event held in the heart of Courtenay. Our 2013 event is schedule for June 4-8, 2013.
Elevate the Arts is all about breaking down the barriers between culture creators and culture consumers and about using arts and culture as a vehicle for re-imagining our communities and the planet.
We are committed to evocative, edgy, experimental and thought provoking content that encourages us to examine, explore, enjoy and elevate the world around us.
The event is also about ‘re-thinking’ and animating our urban core, opening discussion and debate and dreaming about what our downtown can be.
Ultimately we are about actively engaging in the evolution of our community.
We play with paint brushes, puppets, music, dance, circus arts, crafts, kids art, murals, theatre, fire, lanterns, clay, food and so much more. Participants include community organizations, individuals, families, activists, artists, churches, media and businesses who all contribute to our rich cultural community.
The Elevate the Arts combines core programming with events, workshops and activities developed by community partners. We’re here to create AND to be the “glue” (marketing, communications and scheduling) for the creative initiatives of many!
We would love to have you on board with Elevate the Arts 2013. Your support will help us to develop and expand this grass roots celebration of arts, culture, diversity and creative exploration in our community.
