Edmonton | Call for Board Members: Common Ground Arts Society

Common Grounds Arts Society logoCreating common ground for uncommon experiences

Interested in meeting new people, seeing exciting shows, and being engaged in Edmonton’s local arts community? Common Ground Arts Society is looking for dynamic, enthusiastic, motivated board members.

Join our board!

Common Ground Arts Society is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to the promotion and appreciation of local artists. As the producers of Found Festival, Edmonton’s only found space arts festival, CGAS creates opportunities for artists of all disciplines by bringing distinct audience experiences to the Edmonton community. We bring the arts out of galleries and concert halls and into the community. June 2017 marked our 6th annual Found Festival, presenting artists from across Canada in a wide variety of genres, including theatre, poetry, dance, storytelling, and live music.

CGAS’s Board of Directors is a vibrant team who work in tandem with Common Ground Arts Society through governance, policy, and fundraising. Board Members attend a monthly board meeting and contribute to the support of Common Ground Arts Society’s Found Festival and other yearly events.

Previous board experience is an asset, but not necessary. Common Ground Arts Society is committed to creating a diverse, inclusive board with directors varying in age, abilities, gender, or ethno-cultural identity.
If you are interested in joining our diverse and hard-working team, please e-mail board@commongroundarts.ca and we’ll chat about how you might best fit into our organization.

Deadline to apply: December 18, 2017 or until positions are filled.

Draw More Income 2017 EP11: Eveline Kolijn

Hey everyone, it’s another episode of The 2017 Draw More Income Podcast. Today, we are releasing an interview with Calgary artist Eveline Kolijn recorded last month at The Alberta Printmaker’s Society. Eveline’s extensive and unique background in the arts made her an obvious suspect for sitting down to talk shop about being an artist. She’s showing her work constantly, is on all sorts of boards around town, regularly does artistic community projects, and all of this is AFTER having a completely different life studying social sciences in the Netherlands. So, sit back and listen to her chat about stuff like public art, board membership, and switching into the fine arts later in life.

Also, I’d love to say thanks to The Alberta Printmaker’s Society for letting us record this interview in their space. Listeners, if you’re ever looking for another cool Calgary arts organization to hang out with, A/P is pretty great.
