Common Weal Community Arts, Incorporated

Common Weal is a provincial arts organization that links professional artists with communities to promote cultural identity, social justice, and long-term positive social change through collaboration and creative expression. By linking professional artists with communities to engage in collaborative art projects, the organization seeks to empower people, and their communities, to tell their stories in their own voices.  Founded in the early 1990's, recent projects have included Common Circles: Addressing Violence Through Art; Seven Elder Teachings, combining traditional teachings with expressive arts; and Two Story Café, an installation, performance and media art festival focused on Aboriginal artists addressing site and cultural tensions in the Prince Albert area.
