This exhibition of 19th century Canadian painting has been arranged to support students taking 19th Century Art History at the University of Prince Edward Island. Many Canadian artists of the 1800s, including George Thresher, Paul Peel, and Robert Harris, represented here, were trained in Europe. They responded to the landscape and cultures of what was to become Canada, but also to the rapid transformations taking place in European art at the time, prompted by cultural and political revolution, the invention of photography, the acceleration of industry and the expansion of the empire, and the arrival of a mass audience for images.

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.

 

Relaxed Performances offered during the 2021 Charlottetown Festival:
