The Sobey family has demonstrated a deep commitment to giving back to the communities in which they live, work, and conduct business. Their contributions to universities, students, and art institutions, including Confederation Centre of the Arts, are not only generous, but crucial investments in the economic, social, and cultural development of our communities.
The Sobey family’s relationship with Confederation Centre of the Arts dates back to the 1960s. Various family members have volunteered on the board over the years, and they have supported all areas of programming at one time or another – through gifts of artwork, commissions, sponsorships of programs in the Sobey Gallery, choir, and live performances on the mainstage. The Centre is truly grateful for their support connecting art and artists with the community.

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.
