The Centre for All Canadians

Pounding the Pavement: Celebrating and amplifying artists from the fringe is an Island Fringe Festival production in partnership with Confederation Centre of the Arts, with support from InnovationPEI and the City of Charlottetown.

Island artists who identify as Indigenous, BIPOC, 2SLGBTQ+, and those with a disability come together to tell their own stories from their own perspectives. Performances are made up of 10-20 minute vignettes that explore people’s journeys of discovery to having their voices heard (be they personal explorations, activism for equality, etc), and presented as dramatic readings of original poetry and plays, songs, dance, and stand-up comedy.

With performances by Claire Byrne, Homemaker, Jay Gallant, Joce Reyome, Julie Bull, Reequal Smith, Sadie McCarney, Tanya Nicolle, and more, audiences will be moved by this experience.

Safety measures in compliance with COVID-19 precautions are in place. Please respect the guidelines and maintain proper social distancing.

Everyone is welcome; however, some performances include mature content.

Territorial Acknowledgement:
We recognize that we are part of a history in Canada that includes colonization. We take time to think about what happened in the past and about what changes can be made going forward in order to further the reconciliation process. We acknowledge the land on which we gather is unceded Mi’kmaq territory and we pay our respects to the Indigenous people of this territory: past, present and future.

Safer Space Statement:
We are committed to providing an environment in which people can feel safe, confident, and comfortable at our events, regardless of their gender identity, sexual orientation, and gender expression.

Accessibility Information:
The Confederation Centre of the Arts Outdoor Amphitheater is wheelchair accessible.

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.



I agree to receive further communications from Confederation Centre of the Arts for upcoming events, promotions and market research purposes.
