The Symons Medal—one of Canada’s most prestigious honours—recognizes an individual who has made an exceptional contribution to Canadian life. The award and its associated lecture are presented annually at Confederation Centre of the Arts.
The Confederation Centre Art Gallery presents an average of 20 exhibitions of work by Canadian visual artists. The Gallery has four main exhibition halls on two levels, plus smaller exhibition spaces at the entrance and in the concourse of the Centre. In addition, a collection of public sculptures can be found on the esplanades of the Centre. Almost all exhibits are documented and available in our online archives.
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.
