Centre for Contemporary Arts

CCA: Centre for Contemporary Arts is Glasgow’s hub for the arts. We host a year-round programme of exhibitions, events, films, music, literature, workshops, festivals and performances. At the heart of all activities is the desire to work with artists, commission new projects and present them to the widest possible audience. CCA runs an open source programming policy, where we give our venue space to artists and organisations to present their own public events. In 2019-20, CCA worked with 256 programme partners across 1,304 events and 28 festivals. This broad and experimental programme brings a diverse audience to the venue, with 306,482 admissions in 2019-20.

We have won several awards in recent years, including:

The Arts & Culture Award, The Herald Inspiring City Awards
Unique Venue of the Year, the Scottish Event Awards
Best Cultural Venue, The Glasgow Awards
Best Performing Arts Venue at the Sunday Herald Culture Awards (commendation)

CCA curates six exhibitions a year, presenting local and international artists in our gallery. We are also home to Intermedia Gallery, showcasing emerging artists. Entrance to all exhibitions and many events is free. We support the development of new work and offer a programme of artist residencies in our Creative Lab. CCA is proud to support the Paying Artists campaign, you can read our case study
