Welcome to the Center for Creativity and the Arts (CCA) at Fresno State. CCA is California's Central Valley's leading interdisciplinary institute for the arts.  

CCA is a collaboration and dialogue across the university's colleges and disciplines; the Central Valley's multicultural roots, cultures, and industries; and local K-12 arts education affiliates. Serving a diverse university and regional community, CCA engages the public through innovative art exhibitions, university-wide programming and curricula, and community events.

Our goal is for the university and the community to be partners that partake in an active conversation on the arts, why the arts matter, and how the arts can enrich our lives.
