CGAS RISER Found Festival

What is CGAS?

At Common Ground Arts Society (CGAS), We radically invite artists of all disciplines at all stages of their career to wildly experiment with process and craft. We believe in people and process over product: come as you are; create from where you’re at; learn, fail, try again, fail better; tend to your whole self; share art, share kindness, share in community. Mentorship and learning is at the core of everything we do: we’re still learning, we’ll never stop learning, and we want to share in those lessons with you.

We’re looking for a permanent Associate Producer! Click here for the full posting.
