Centre for Chinese Contemporary Art works with a diverse range of partners to provide people with a lively and innovative programme of exhibitions, residencies, engagement projects, festivals, symposia and events.

We are open to developing exciting contemporary arts projects with different partners and believe in developing opportunities that encourage interest and dialogue around contemporary culture between East and West.

Centre for Chinese Contemporary Art is an Arts Council National Portfolio organisation, in receipt of regular grants to support our work, but to enable our programme to develop and flourish we need to raise additional funding every year. We also receive annual core funding from Manchester City Council.
