About CCA: Centre for Contemporary Arts
CCA: Centre for Contemporary Arts is Glasgow’s hub for the arts. Our year-round programme includes cutting-edge exhibitions, film, music, literature, spoken word, festivals, Gaelic and performance. At the heart of all activities is the desire to work with artists, commission new projects and present them to the widest possible audience. Donations to CCA will go towards extending access to our wide-ranging programme of arts events in the venue, and our citywide public engagement programme which has – at its heart – the prospect of cultural and social change explored through art.
We operate a unique open source programming policy where we offer organisations and individuals space in the building to programme their own events. In 2015-16, CCA worked with 244 programme partners across 1,011 events and 28 festivals.
In both 2015 and 2016, CCA won the award for Best Cultural Venue in The Glasgow Awards highlighting the quality of the impressive programme presented by the venue and its partners. This broad and experimental programme encourages a diverse audience to experience the arts, with 334,511 admissions to the venue in the past year.
CCA curates six major exhibitions a year, presenting national and international contemporary artists in our gallery space.
Our public engagement programme launched in 2015, to date 60 activities have taken place in CCA and across Glasgow, reaching 2,238 participants.
Entrance to all our exhibitions and many events is free.
