The Centre for All Canadians

Czech Republic Ambassador shows support of Centre

(Charlottetown, P.E.I.) – Confederation Centre of the Arts is pleased to host the Czech Republic’s Ambassador to Canada, Pavel Hrnčíř (pronounced Paul Hern-cheesh), on May 29 in The Confederation Chamber at 4:00 p.m.

Ambassador Hrnčíř is coming to the Centre to show his support of our new travel program, “Imperial Cities,” developed in partnership with CAA Member Choice Vacations. This new travel program takes members on an 11-day cultural experience of Prague, Vienna, and Budapest. The program also serves as a fundraiser for the Centre with a percentage of each booking being donated back to support arts education.

As Prague is the Ambassador’s homeland, he wanted to stop by the Centre during his visit to Charlottetown to meet the travellers and show his support for the work of the Centre in educating communities on the role of the arts in creating cross-cultural understanding.

You’re invited to join us at the meet and greet on:

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.

 

Relaxed Performances offered during the 2021 Charlottetown Festival:
