The Quaranteens – Intro Video

The Quaranteens is a virtual interactive gallery that allows audiences a glimpse into the daily lives of teenagers in quarantine. Shown through their eyes, and complemented by interviews with the project creators, you are invited to experience a different version of quarantine – one that has perhaps been overlooked by those of us who might be preoccupied with our own adult responsibilities.

Using their own language and unique style to interpret and process the upheaval of their lives, these teens will pull back the curtain to reveal a world that is sometimes secretive, but nonetheless valid. Told perhaps through short film, an original piece of music, or even some visual art, The Quaranteens will give audiences the teenage perspective as they navigate these uncertain times.

This performance will premiere on Friday, July 3 at 5pm right here on the Found Festival website. Enjoy at your own pace! Stay tuned – we’ll be adding more videos throughout the weekend.

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.

PSST! Hey Foundsters – COVID-19 is real and we want you to stay safe and healthy. All of our programming is designed to be experienced solo or with your designated cohort/house group/pod. Please don’t gather in large groups. Please mask up. Please keep a safe distance from others. And please review Alberta Health Services’ recommendations here and here.

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.
