This was another positive year for CCA which began with us celebrating our 25th anniversary, since CCA opened on 1 May 1992, marked by our commission of a new edition by Rob Churm - Now is Before - which revisited posters from CCA’s programme archive.

Our anniversary year saw us win the Best Cultural Venue award at the Glasgow Awards in 2017 for the third year running; the Arts & Culture Award at The Herald Inspiring City Awards and Unique Venue of the Year at the Scottish Event Awards. CCA also received a commendation for Best Performing Arts Venue at the Sunday Herald Culture Awards, was shortlisted in the Glasgow Business Awards (Innovation in Youth Employment) and, for the second year running, the Venue of the Year category at The Icon Awards. Our Head of Operations, Ailza Nazir, was also shortlisted for Creative Industries Leader of the Year (Scottish Women’s Awards) and Venue Manager of the Year (Women in Hospitality & Tourism Awards).

In 2017-18 CCA had:

343,397 admissions to the building – our best year on record.
24,841 visitors to our six main gallery exhibitions, with 4,555 attending Intermedia.
2,726 people participating in 58 activities in our public engagement programme.
