Mission


VCCA advances the arts by providing a creative space in which our best national and international artists produce their finest literature, visual art and music.

One of the leading artists communities in the world with locations in Amherst, Virginia and Auvillar, France, the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts (VCCA) has as its mission advancing the arts by providing creative space in which our best national and international writers, visual artists and composers produce their finest creative work.

Each year, VCCA hosts over 500 artists at Mt. San Angelo in central Virginia and at the Moulin à Nef in France. The artists who come to VCCA are professionals, selected by a peer review jury on the basis of the important or innovative work they are doing in their respective fields.
