Elevate is an annual fall celebration that focuses creative energy, public art and cultural events in Downtown Atlanta. Elevate is made possible by The City of Atlanta Mayor’s Office of Cultural Affairs with significant support from cultural, community and business partnerships.
Social City is the theme for all projects and performances during Elevate 2014. Elevate projects focus on the physical environment with regard to social interconnectedness and individual experiences. Artworks, Performances and Panels will contemplate how a city’s perceptions are altered based on the intersection of art, architecture, design and communication.
