CCA presents experimental contemporary visual art, performance, film, music, spoken word and other events. We are a hub for creative activity, engaging with individuals and communities, aiming to contribute to the vibrancy and vitality of cultural life in Glasgow and beyond.

Centre for Contemporary Arts (CCA) curates six major exhibitions a year, showing a wide range of Scottish and international contemporary art, as well as being home to Intermedia Gallery for emerging artists. Fast developing a reputation for world class improvised, experimental and electronic music, CCA also screens independent short, foreign and documentary films otherwise unavailable across the city.
