Confederation centre of the arts
Confederation Centre of the Arts offers a rich variety of arts and heritage programming and welcomes thousands of visitors through its doors year-round. The Centre features world-class musicals at The Charlottetown Festival, revolving exhibitions at its gallery, interactive learning experiences, and more. As a community hub, it offers live entertainment, visual art, educational programs, and heritage tours.
The Confederation Centre has earned an engaged and loyal following through its various community programs and initiatives such as Frontline & Centre, a tribute to frontline workers during the pandemic; Arts in Colour: Stories from Black Island Artists, a panel discussion featured Black artists; Art Lotto, a fundraiser to support Island artists and arts education; and more.
The Centre’s newly launched Lou MacEachern Community Partnership Program is a partnership that allows other local organizations to have access to the Centre’s facilities and resources. Some of these partnerships include Mi’kmaq Heritage Actors, Black Cultural Society, United Way of PEI, Art In The Open, and the P.E.I. Symphony Orchestra. The Centre also works closely with a number of tourism partners to promote the cultural offerings of Prince Edward Island.
Community partnerships and collaborations like these demonstrate the Centre’s efforts to enhance its presence in the community and positively impact the social and cultural wellbeing of the Greater Charlottetown Area and the province as a whole.
