January 10, 2023 – Confederation Centre of the Arts is seeking housing for artists involved with The 2023 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 artists coming to the Island this summer who need accommodations between mid-May to the end of September. The dates and lengths of their stays vary; most artists will stay for the whole summer, but others only stay for two to four weeks. 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 preferred, but hosts in other communities can also submit. Locations within walking distance to the Centre, or near transit lines / bike-friendly areas are ideal.
Providing accommodations for incoming artists is vital to the success of The Charlottetown Festival, and hosts will receive a few perks for making their rental space available.
Confederation Centre asks the community to share this call with friends, family, and co-workers to help spread the word.
For more details or to submit an accommodation, please contact Rosie Shaw at [email protected] or 902-388-0211.
