About Us

Centre for Contemporary Art Derry~Londonderry (CCA) fosters a wide range of artistic, curatorial, and critical practices through five programme streams: research and production, exhibition-making, public programmes, publishing, and residencies.

Mission: The Centre for Contemporary Art creates opportunities for audiences to experience ambitious, experimental and engaging art, and for emerging artists to develop successful careers. We welcome artists and projects with a connection to our region and collaborate with others to strengthen the arts, locally, nationally and internationally.
