The Clifton Cultural Arts Center (CCAC) mission is to strengthen the critical link between participation in the cultural arts and successful children, adults and communities. CCAC was incorporated in 2004 to enhance the quality of life in Uptown Cincinnati by renovating two vacant historic buildings – the 4,400 sq. ft. Carriage House designed in the 1880s by Samuel Hannaford and the 53,000 sq. ft. Beaux Arts Clifton School building built in 1906 – for continued civic use as a 57,000 sq. ft. cultural arts center.
Serving residents of all ages, socioeconomic capacities and ethnic backgrounds in Uptown and surrounding communities, CCAC will offer arts and cultural classes, after school arts programming, art exhibits, as well as venues for theatre, music, dance, and others needing performance space. CCAC will nurture the interests of youth who will become future Cincinnati arts patrons, promoting sustainability of Cincinnati’s rich concentration of arts and cultural offerings.
