What We Do

Burbank is a cultural potpourri and we have yet to fully explore and appreciate all the different cultures within our city. We want to give you and your neighbors the opportunity to get to know each other and our cultures so that we can all come together to make sure the future of Burbank is unified, bright, and limitless.


Who We Are

Our mission is to promote the understanding of cultural diversity through events, engagement and partnerships with the Burbank community. We aim to create a Burbank where residents can experience and appreciate the cultural diversity in our city. We hope to create a modern Burbank that is unified, joyful, vibrant and prosperous.

Here are some highlights from our

2023 Multicultural Arts Festival

“The idea of having an ongoing community event that focused on arts, culture and the immense talent of this city was something I had wanted to see happen in Burbank for years. Linda and her vision with Elevate Burbank not only illuminates the stage for performers, but for the community as well. Talent from around the world comes to our city to be discovered, and now our very own are elevated to the spotlight as well. “

To support a full creative life for all, Elevate Burbank commits to championing policies and practices of cultural equity that empower a just, inclusive, equitable nation. Cultural equity embodies the values, policies, and practices that ensure that all people—including but not limited to those who have been historically underrepresented based on race/ethnicity, age, disability, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, socioeconomic status, geography, citizenship status, or religion—are represented in the development of arts policy; the support of artists; the nurturing of accessible, thriving venues for expression; and the fair distribution of programmatic, financial, and informational resources. Elevate Burbank is one of the first organizations in the city of Burbank working to realize cultural equity in the arts and for that reason deserves everyone’s support.

After participating in Elevate Burbank’s 2022 Multicultural Festival, I was exposed to my community’s wide variety of talents, heritage, and values as local residents. Being an Armenian-American representative of my community and performing my original poem provided me the opportunity to meet with fellow neighbors and celebrate our diversity
