CFCCA is a unique art gallery with a year-round programme of socially engaged exhibitions, events and artist residencies.

We have over 30 years’ experience of working with emerging and established artists to provide a space for conversation, debate and cross-cultural exchange.

We are the go to place to discover new artists and explore relevant global issues from different international perspectives.

In July 2020, CFCCA began a revisioning process that will bring open consultation and conversation to help shape the future of the organisation. If you want to find out more or be part of the conversation, sign up to our monthly newsletter (via our homepage) or contact us at
