Now in its fourth year, Found is a living, breathing showcase of dance, theatre, visual art, music, film, creative writing and more all in unexpected places. Our aim is to produce an event that is affordable, accessible, interactive, and empowering, encouraging artists to contribute to the cultural landscape of the city.
Our past venues have included a funeral home, residential garage, and a Dodge grand caravan. We’ve had live music played off rooftops, movies projected onto buildings, and a play performed— in the middle of June— on a giant pile of snow. Some pieces are designed for as few as 5 people at a time, with others accommodating as many as 200. We are committed to presenting innovative, entertaining, and provocative new works which push the boundaries of audience interaction, allowing both spectators and performers to engage in a more stimulating brand of risk-taking and play.

The Common Ground Arts Society is a not-for-profit organization established in 2009 dedicated to the promotion, advocacy, and development of Edmonton’s emerging arts scene. We hope to successfully showcase and develop the work of artists in Edmonton through our flagship festival, workshops, performances and community events.
