Cultural Center of the Philippines

The Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP) is the national center for the performing arts. It is mandated to promote excellence in the arts through the initiation and implementation of activities that aim to improve and elevate standards among cultural workers, artists and audiences and to recognize the pluralism and differences of aesthetic experiences and standards encompassing the arts from grassroots to those formulated by academy-trained artists.

Designed by National Artist for Architecture, Leandro Locsin, the CCP majestically rises on a 21-hectare piece of reclaimed land along Roxas Boulevard in Manila. It is considered to be one of the most significant and beautiful landmarks of the Philippines.

CCP'S main objectives are:

  • To encourage the creation of original Filipino works;
  • To encourage artistic activities all over the country;
  • To increase critical awareness and support of cultural activities among various publics;
  • To encourage artistic excellence among artists

CCP houses several venues for the performing arts as well as areas for both permanent and challenging exhibits. It serves as home for the country's premier performing arts groups such as the Ballet Philippines, the Philippine Philharmonic Orchestra, Tanghalang Pilipino and others.

The CCP is located along Roxas Blvd., Manila with tel. no. 832-1125.
