Common Ground Arts Society
The Common Ground Arts Society is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the promotion and advocacy of local artists. The society strives to create opportunity for artists of all disciplines, and brings unique audience experiences to the Edmonton community.
Found is a unique and innovative showcase of dance, theatre, visual art, music, creative writing and more, transforming unconventional places into unique arts spaces. Past performance venues include theatre in a grocery store, dance among park trees, a radio play on the High Level Bridge, an art installation in a storefront window, and more! Bursting with creativity and energy, Found Festival transports the arts out of theatres, galleries, and stages and directly into the heart of the city, allowing audiences to experience visual and performing arts in ways they have never before — right in their own neighborhood!
The Found Festival Main Grounds is located in the bustling centre of Old Strathcona at Dr. Wilbert McIntyre Park (83 Ave & 104 street next to Whyte Avenue and the Old Strathcona Farmer’s Market). Throughout the festival weekend, the Found Festival Main Grounds presents numerous outdoor events free to the public. This includes the Found Festival Music Series featuring exciting local bands, activities for youth, buskers, food vendors, a licensed liquor gardens, interactive arts and craft stations, an outdoor film screening, and more!
