The centre provides a space for the development, exhibition and appreciation of traditional and contemporary art by providing facilities, professional expertise and a supportive atmosphere for arts creation, presentation, and dissemination. The Centre for Performance and Creativity supports all disciplines with a primary focus on music and performance.
