Confederation Centre of the Arts would like to congratulate Darcy Campbell, Director of LIVE @ the Centre, for taking home the Music PEI Award for Industry Person of the Year.
Darcy has been with the Centre for over 20 years, beginning as a member of our Front of House team in 1998, and eventually becoming Director of LIVE @ the Centre in 2009. Darcy manages many aspects of the Centre’s winter programming across multiple performance spaces, including talent scouting, artist relations, contracting, MCing, and more. His lineups feature an impressive selection of comedy, dance, music of all genres, family entertainment, French programming, live lectures, and more. Through the COVID-19 pandemic, Darcy has been instrumental in keeping live art and music going on PEI, programming events like Set in the Sun, an outdoor hybrid concert series. He also initiated the program ‘Frontline & Centre,’ which pays tribute to PEI’s frontline workers with complimentary tickets.
The Confederation Centre of the Arts thanks Music PEI for recognizing Darcy’s hard work in the live performance industry, and shouts out Industry Person of the Year Award sponsor, Sara Roach Lewis.
