Summer Swing Ding

Okay gang! The details are starting to come out!

We’re having a big band experience on Saturday July 2! When Mr. Cudmore closes the doors for the weekend, we’re going to take over the food court in the The Confederation Court Mall, the Charlottetown Jazz Ensemble is going to be playing some Swingin’ Tunes, and Upstreet Craft Brewing is going to be serving some fizzy beverages!

On Sunday, July 3, we’re piling on the fun with a brunch catered by Café Thomas-Martin and the Strait Jazz group is going to fire up the instruments for an extra shot of dance music! There *may* be beer-mosas. Just a rumour at this point.

This is not an event to miss! If you dance… welcome! If you like to tap your toes… Welcome! If you love Jazz… WELCOME! If you like BRUNCH? Then grab your tickets soon!

*if you are travelling from out of town, there are special rates for you from The Holman Grand Hotel and The Arts Hotel

The Big Reveal

It is one week until opening night of Gender Reveal Party: A (he)art exhibition by Rory Starkman and Julie Bull!

We are excited to see the exhibit… and to see them in the 2022 Island Fringe Festival later this year!

This Month is the Month

Black artists have influenced Canadian culture for decades, and yet have not been given the same opportunities as their white counterparts. This sort of systematic racism needs to stop. Make time to recognize Black artists, celebrate Black artists, and demand to see Black artists on stages and in theatres in your communities.
