The Centre for All Canadians

The 2018 “Cute as a…” collection to be released

Charlottetown (P.E.I) – The popular button event, “Cute as a …” is returning to the Confederation Centre Art Gallery on March 9 at 7 p.m.  Come see the 2018 collection, featuring original, jury-selected designs by 20 local artists.

It’s free admission for the event, and button packs are available to buy on the night to trade throughout the evening, with proceeds from the event going directly into more public art programming at the Gallery.

A jury of five artists, curators, and designers chose 20 button designs from 56 entries. The selected designs range from children’s drawings to the works of well-established artists.

“Cute as a…” is a great opportunity to network, visit the gallery, and walk away with your own selection of 1 ¼- inch wearable artwork. The button showing and swapping will take place from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

For more information please contact Kate Sharpley at (902) 628-6112 or visit the website at http://www.confederationcentre.com/en/art-gallery.php

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:
