The Cultural Center of Cape Cod, Inc., is a 501(c)3 non profit organization. Employer Identification # 04-3553295.

The Cultural Center’s mission is to serve the entire Cape community and visitors to the area by offering instruction, entertainment, and exhibition in the visual, literary, and performing arts.

The Cultural Center of Cape Cod is a community-based organization that strives to live up to its motto “All the Arts for All of Us” by offering a wide range of events, exhibits, and educational programs.

Everything that happens at the Cultural Center of Cape Cod—everything it does and represents—is predicated upon a democratic philosophy of inclusion, encouragement, and accessibility. Everyone who comes to the Center with an idea, question, or request is given the time, attention, and energy it takes to consider all possibilities and address needs creatively and compassionately.

The Cultural Center’s performance and exhibition schedules feature a balance of emerging and established artists—literary, performing, and visual—of many media, genres, and styles. Flexible teachers lead classes appropriate for a range of ages and all levels of ability. Likewise, ticket prices and tuitions are reasonable, and scholarships are available for those without the means to pay. Admission to exhibits, art receptions, and many other events is free.

At the same time, the Center strives to maintain a level of quality in its offerings that puts it among the area’s best galleries and performing arts centers. Its goal is to encourage both excellence and inclusion.

The Center frequently partners with other organizations in the arts and human services; collaboration is one of the cornerstones of its capacity to serve a diverse community.

Both the breadth and depth of its programming make the Cultural Center strong, flexible, and vibrant. And it is an identity as both arts and community center that attracts participants, members, audiences, and patrons from all over the region and beyond.
