The workshop series offers members of PEI’s arts community an opportunity to explore information and avenues within the arts which may not be readily accessible in their day-to-day programming.
These workshops are led by local and nationally sourced professionals in the industry. Workshops are open to the public on a first-come-first-served basis and are held at Confederation Centre of the Arts.
At Confederation Centre of the Arts we celebrate the origins and evolution of Canada through a rich variety of heritage and arts programming. We aim to inspire Canadians to consider our country’s past, present, and future through performing arts, visual arts, and interactive learning experiences – truly the Centre for all Canadians.

What are Relaxed Performances?
Sometimes referred to as sensory-friendly experiences, Relaxed Performances give the opportunity for those with various sensitivities towards sensory stimuli to experience and enjoy live theatre.
These performances will be designed in a way to be more comfortable for audience members who may experience anxiety or are not comfortable with some aspects of a traditional theatre setting. This can include people on the Autism Spectrum and their families; those with sensory and communicative disorders or learning disabilities; people with Tourette’s syndrome; someone who might need to move often due to chronic pain or to use the facilities; or even parents with toddlers.
