Confederation Centre of the Arts will be closed to the public as of Tuesday December 8. This follows the Chief Public Health Office’s (CPHO) instigation of a two-week ‘circuit breaker’ approach to protocols, extending until December 21.
This closure includes the Confederation Centre Art Gallery, the Confederation Centre Public Library, The Story of Confederation, and other arts education offerings. The remaining 2020 dance umbrella classes are cancelled, and the program will resume in the new year.
The Centre’s two scheduled holiday concerts, Comfort & Joy (Dec. 20) and The East Pointers (part of Capital New Year, Dec. 30-31) are tentative at this time, pending updates from CPHO. Depending on the unfolding public health situation, one or both of these concerts may proceed and patrons are asked to hold on to their tickets and watch confederationcentre.com<http://www.confederationcentre.com> and Centre social media for updates in the next week.
Patrons with ticketing questions can contact the Centre’s box office via email, email@example.com<mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org>. All Confederation Centre staff are still available via email and phone and are either working from home or safely on-site.
Patrons are also reminded that year-end giving is still available at this time, with options to give online at confederationcentre.com/donate<http://www.confederationcentre.com/donate> or via mail: 145 Richmond Street, Charlottetown, PE, C1A1J1. End-of-year donations must be received by December 31, 2020 in order to receive a taxation receipt.
