We would like to thank CO*LAB and their events coordinator Sophie McKinnon for making this process so simple. Thank you to Delainey Neddow for transportation and hardware services.

It’s darn important to us that Found Festival remains accessible for as many Foundsters in our community as possible. That includes making all tickets Offer What You Will. No one will be turned away for lack of funds. But if you’re able, we ask you please make an offer. As a tiny but mighty arts org getting it done on passion and grit, Common Ground Arts Society relies on donations to help keep our scrappy operation afloat. Every offer you make goes directly toward supporting artists in our community.

We suggest $10/event if you can afford it. Any offer over $10 is a direct donation to Common Ground Arts Society. All donations over $20 will be provided with a charitable tax receipt.

We find ourselves in Amiskwaciwâskahikan (ᐊᒥᐢᑲᐧᒋᐋᐧᐢᑲᐦᐃᑲᐣ) on Treaty 6 territory, traditional lands of the Cree, Nakota, Blackfoot, Dene, Saulteaux, Metis, and other indigenous peoples who have made this place home long before we settled here. For thousands of years, people have gathered here to share in story, community, and creative exchange.

We find ourselves thankful: thankful to play a small part in that long-standing tradition, a tradition carried on the shoulders of so many creators, builders, dreamers, agitators, and makers who came before us, and who will come long after us.

We find ourselves inspired: inspired by an evolving community of artists who passionately spark the magic that manifests when we surrender ourselves to the long summer days of this northern place.

We find ourselves grateful: grateful to everyone who rallies around this tiny but mighty Festival — the artists, the volunteers, the staff, the audience, the board, the mentors, the partners and sponsors, the funders, the believers. Found Festival exists because of you.
