Call for Artist Trading Cards registration

May 19, 2022 – The Confederation Centre Art Gallery invites artists of all ages and disciplines, professional and non-professional, to register for the 16th annual Artist Trading Cards event.

This year, the registration will be limited to 50 participants. However, this number does not include participants who will be mailing their cards. Registration will be on a first-come, first-served basis and we kindly ask that you inform organizers if you can no longer participate in the event as a waiting list is expected.

Artist trading cards are miniature works of art. They can be created with any material imaginable, including paper, wool, wood, clay, and more.

This year’s registration deadline is Monday, July 4. Shortly after registration, participants will be contacted to confirm the number of cards they are required to create for the event.

People who sign up for the event must make as many cards as the number of people who have registered. Cards can be produced in editions (a limited number of the same card), series (a set of cards with a unifying theme), or as singular originals.

The main requirement is the size: cards must be the same size as modern baseball cards or 2 ½ x 3 ½ inches (6 cm x 9 cm), small enough to fit inside standard card-collector pockets, sleeves, or sheets. Artist trading cards must be self-produced. The artist’s name and contact information, as well as the card title and the edition or series number, is to be written on the back. For more information on artist trading cards please click here.

The 16th annual trading event will be held on Thursday, August 4 at 7 p.m. in Memorial Hall. Should there be a change in the COVID-19 situation, participants will be informed of the updated protocol.

For more information or to register, please contact Monique Lafontaine by email at [email protected].

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.
