Welcome to the Cultural Activities Center!
The Cultural Activities Center, in Temple, Texas, believes in the power of creation! We want to enrich the lives of all Central Texas residents by inspiring exploration, involvement, and enjoyment in the arts. The CAC is a community funded not-for-profit arts center with the goal of encouraging and cooperating with other area arts institutions, supporting the arts in education, and providing resources to get active. We especially want kids to realize early that we are all artists, that every action of our day has the potential to be art, and that each of us possess the raw tools to make this a reality using our own natural creative abilities. The CAC gives the community a facility in which to dance, to perform, to play games, to make music, to make art, develop talent, teach technique, share ideas, and learn from other creators and performers ways to express life's richness, in all of its disciplines and freedoms, sorrows and joys, ugliness and beauty. We each have the power to recreate ourselves and change our lives and our world for the good of all. The CAC is here to help.
Using a fully equipped theater with technical support, 4 art studios, 4 lovely art galleries, and 4 beautiful meeting rooms for parties and events, the CAC hosts professional touring shows, concerts with world class musicians, community staged productions, gallery exhibits, classes and workshops, summer arts camps, residencies like Missoula Children’s Theatre, and we provide a home to organizations like the Central Texas Orchestral Society, Central Texas Film Society, the Review Club, the Quilt Guild, and many others. The CAC celebrates all of the arts and humanities as an essential exercise of life and liberty, and encourages participation by people of all ages, interests, and backgrounds.
The CAC Mission - "Enhance the quality of life for Central Texans by igniting interest and promoting participation in the arts."
The CAC Vision
- "The Cultural Activities Center will be widely known as the unique destination in Central Texas that provides exposure to art forms and creative entertainment from around the world, enticing all to discover and explore the arts and humanities for personal and community enrichment."
Our events and activities would not be possible without support from our members. Please consider becoming a member today to help support the arts.
