The Centre for All Canadians

The Schurman Family Studio is the heart of our visual arts programming. This colourful art space is accessible via an outside entrance located between the outdoor amphitheatre and Charlottetown Cenotagh. The Schurman Family Studio is used for arts education programming including visual arts classes, camps, workshops and in-studio exhibitions. The studio is filled with art supplies to fuel artists’ imagination and features large table seating, easel set-up, utility sink, and washroom.

The Schurman Family Studio is named in honour of the late Michael S. Schurman for his dedication and kindness towards arts education at the Confederation Centre. Michael S. Schurman served on the board of directors, chair of Major Gifts and Endowments Committee and Founding Chair of the Confederation Centre of the Arts Foundation Board.

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.
