When David and his wife Binta married three years ago, all of their wedding guests donated gifts to Christina Cultural Arts Center (CCAC) because of the profound impact made on David's young life. David, a graduate of FIT in New York, a Veteran and a Filmmaker, had applied for a passport at the age of 15 and with the help of Christina Cultural Arts Center was able to travel explore the globe.
"As a teenager growing up in Wilmington, CCAC helped me unlock worlds and ideas I may have never discovered. I grew leaps and bounds through the power of discovery. I proudly attribute my ability to navigate and find success as a soldier in Iraq and as a manager/producer working alongside award-winning musicians to my experience at Christina Cultural Arts Center. "
For 73 years, Christina Cultural Arts Center (CCAC) has been inclusive and welcoming and a pillar of hope that brings generations of families together through the arts. Our mission to remove access barriers to arts learning includes music, dance, drama and technological instruction, youth violence prevention, career internships, and education for community development. Affordable classes are taught by top notch artists in the tri-state region. In 2018 alone 5,447 children, teens and adults from low income communities benefited from improved access to affordable arts experiences. Classes are affordable because of generous donations from our supporters, but as the income gap continues to grow we must continue show up for those who need our help.
