During this exhibition, CCA members can enjoy a unique members-only experience, a virtual tour into the past. 

During its ten years of operation, the Center has implemented numerous educational programs, many of which were sponsored by Beeline.

For the occasion of  International Museum Day, the Center has designed a double surprise for children and teenagers, Create your Journey, an educational recreational online platform, and DesignLab: Chairs  a new educational program. The latter will enable schoolchildren over the age of 11 and their families to depict a chair according to their own design, with the support of young designers.
