Elevation uses painters, musicians, fashion designers, DJs, sculptors, videography installations, dance and spoken word. It presents these artists in solo performances, workshops, and in unique curated multi-arts collaborations. The purpose is to inspire everyday people to dialogue and experience art-making of every genre, as well as in unique collaborations of the various forms. Elevation creates one-of-a-kind gatherings and art parties that make the arts relevant and useful to various communities throughout the world. In doing so, it elevates and inspires participation in the creative process. This is Elevation!
