About Center for Creativity and the Arts

Our Mission

CCA's mission is to engage the public with the arts vis-à-vis dynamic interdisciplinary programming that highlights local topics that have global perspectives.  Each year, CCA explores a theme that focuses on contemporary conversations or issues that are important to our society. Through art exhibitions, films, lectures, debates, theater, and musical performances, the theme is approached from a multidisciplinary perspective that stimulates public engagement through inquiry, discussion and understanding.

As an institution, CCA is committed to contributing to the intellectual, social and artistic life of the university and the Central Valley.  We seek to create an environment where the arts function as a catalyst for intellectual and creative conversations that are grounded in the everyday life of the Central Valley. That is why interdisciplinary community engagement and yearly thematic programming that is relevant to the Central Valley are the cornerstones of CCA's programing.
