ECCA is the future European Centre for Contemporary Art in Cluj-Napoca.

It builds on the potential of the vibrating local art scene and creates a framework for better valuing contemporary arts practice in Romania.

The project redefines the relationship between institutions and audiences, committing to accompany all segments of the public in a journey dedicated to critically exploring and actively involving the contemporary art practice as a model of knowledge production. ECCA is dedicated to researching and promoting artistic processes and works in the fields of visual arts, performing arts and media arts.

ECCA is coordinated in collaboration with the main contemporary art actors in Cluj-Napoca and with several key European institutions. In preparation for the future art centre, ECCA and its partners co-organize the Autumn School of Curating and establish the ECCA Archive, a programme to document, preserve and valorise artworks created by recent generations of Cluj based artists.
