Common Ground Arts Society is a tiny-but-mighty Edmonton-based arts organization getting it done on passion and grit. We champion inclusivity and dismantle barriers to arts work through inventive development, mentorships, and presentation opportunities that incite positive change.

What do we do?
You may know us from over ten years of art in unexpected places with Found Festival, Edmonton’s premier event for site-specific multidisciplinary art. We’ve also launched a dozen locally-built productions through RISER Edmonton, a large-scale project incubator to uplift artists challenging what’s possible on stage.

Our members help us build new platforms for artists who’ve been historically excluded from professional arts work. Through Found Festival, RISER Edmonton, and more all year long, we strive to continue making bigger and better spaces for all artists to tell their stories.
