Confederation Centre Welcomes New Director of Philanthropy
-Haddad assumes director position following fundraising roles with Toronto Symphony Orchestra, National Ballet, and Toronto Arts Foundation-
CEO Steve Bellamy and Confederation Centre of the Arts are pleased to welcome Nadine Haddad to the Senior Management group as the Centre’s director of philanthropy.
Haddad joins the team following almost a decade fundraising for the arts sector in Toronto. As an emerging arts leader, she has worked with The National Ballet of Canada, The Toronto Symphony Orchestra, Opera Atelier, The Regent Park School of Music, and Toronto Arts Foundation.
“We are thrilled to welcome Nadine to Confederation Centre and back to the Island,” says Bellamy. “On behalf of all staff and our board of directors, we wish her every success as she begins this leadership role and a new stage of her career.”
After completing her undergraduate in music at the University of Prince Edward Island, Haddad continued her education in Arts Management at Western University.
“The combination of these two educational streams led me to pursue a gratifying career as a professional in fundraising, marketing, and events,” she offers. “I look forward to being an advocate and promoter for the Centre and for the arts on P.E.I.”
Haddad grew up in Charlottetown and was previously a member of the Confederation Centre Young Company, a Front of House usher, and a summer volunteer at the Centre.

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.
