Centre for Contemporary Arts is Glasgow's hub for creative activity. The building is steeped in history and the organisation has played a key role in the cultural life of the city for decades. We are proud to contribute to the vibrancy and vitality of Scotland's exciting arts scene. Our year-round programme includes cutting-edge exhibitions, film, music, literature, spoken word, festivals, Gaelic and much more. We have an open-source approach to programming and work with a growing number of partners and individuals to whom we often offer residencies in the building and/or the space to programme their own events. At the heart of all of activities is the desire to work with artists, generate new projects and present them to the widest possible audience. CCA curates six major exhibitions a year, presenting national and international contemporary artists in our gallery space. We are also home to Intermedia Gallery, showcasing emerging artists. Entrance to exhibitions and many events is free. Saramago Cafe Bar offers a relaxed environment and a great menu during the day as well as lively place to hang out in the evenings. Free wi-fi is available throughout the building. Independent shops Aye Aye Books and Welcome Home are located in the entrance area, offering a wide range of publications, craft and design to take home.

Intimate venue for smaller gigs. Great sound too. Also as a bonus has a bar and cafe/restaurant. Toilets spotless too. Friendly staff. No negatives whatsoever.

Looks like an interesting place with various exhibits and activities. Restaurant in the center of the ground floor has great coffee and most interesting vegetarian (Vegan) dishes. Nice place just to hang out for a bit.

An interesting Centre, with gallery and cinema, based in a wonderful Alexander Greek Thomson building. The restaurant is a bit off the wall, with some unusual staff, whose communication skills were somewhat lacking. Very organic in all senses. Interesting shop at the door.

The café bar here has a great atmosphere. We came a couple of times for a coffee/beer, and it has a nice buzz, obviously a meeting place for some of the artists in the city.
