February 24, 2022 – Confederation Centre of the Arts is currently seeking housing for artists performing in The 2022 Charlottetown Festival.
P.E.I.’s housing crunch makes it challenging to find accommodations, and the Centre relies on the support of the community to welcome top-tier talent to the Island. The Centre assists seasonal artists with their housing search by assembling a list of options from the community. Artists will then connect with a host directly to book, arrange payment, coordinate details, etc.
There are almost 30 artists coming to the Island this summer. The dates of their stays vary, but the majority will be here from mid-May to the end of September. Hosts with any availability within that window are encouraged to reach out. All types of accommodations are welcome, including houses, condos, apartments, secondary suites, spare bedrooms, etc. Places in Charlottetown are preferred, but hosts in other communities can also submit.
Providing accommodations for incoming artists is vital to the success of The Charlottetown Festival, and hosts will receive a few perks for their contribution.
Confederation Centre asks the community to share this call with friends, family, and co-workers to help spread the word.

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.
