Confederation Centre of the Arts is looking beyond its walls for its next act. Under the banner of CIBC Confed Centre Presents, the Centre will soon deliver Postcards from the Island, a weekly online series featuring a rich depth of creative pioneers and local artists in unique locations.
This new 12-part digital series from Director Adam Brazier will launch on Facebook and YouTube Premiere on Thursday, August 6 at 8 p.m. Each 8-10-minute episode will profile a unique Island talent performing and sharing conversation with Brazier – all set within a different culturally significant venue.
“This series is a love letter to the rest of the country saying: we wish you were here, but since you can’t be, here’s a taste of the Island,” glows Brazier. “We have an opportunity to present something different right now, to get out beyond our centre and share some creative dialogue and moving performances with our patrons at home—wherever that may be.”
