Common Ground on the Border


  • Green Valley, AZ

Common Ground on the Border is a three-day event in Green Valley, Arizona, featuring classes in art, music and a variety of lectures. The US-Mexico Borderlands have always been a beautiful mix of culture, language, cuisine, economies and people. It has also been a place of struggle, high and low temperatures, a fragile environment, and the push and pull of immigration. Common Ground on the Border is a unique gathering where the deep artistic and cultural roots of the Borderlands are lifted up and conversation is created that bring us across borders and move us to common ground.

Wordcraft Circle has been invited back for the third year to host a workshop on Storytelling for the Digital Age.  We invite Native youth and community members to join us and lend their voice to the engaging and dynamic conversation that takes place over the course of the three days.  Cost for attendance: $45 for a single class, $185 for the full festival.
