If you are interested in exhibiting your work, setting-up a new workshop, or using our performance space please do not hesitate to get in touch with us.


This bustling cultural hub is located in the Albaicín, the stunning historic quarter of the city which was declared a UNESCO world heritage site in 1984. The Centre is housed in the majestic Casa de Porras, a magnificent Mudejar Palace constructed by the local Moorish community in the 16th Century.
