Presenter Description:

Lincoln City Cultural Center was first known as The Lincoln City Arts Forum when established on August 10, 1992. It was renamed the "4C's" (Coastal Communities Cultural Center), and received its Articles of Incorporation on December 20, 1996. The organization obtained Non-Profit altStatus as IRS 501(c)3  on October 14, 1997.

Six months later, in April of 1998, its first By-Laws were established and later revised in 2003. In September 2006, the 4C's leased DeLake School from the city of Lincoln City; and adopted its new business name of Lincoln City Cultural Center in February 2007.

Since 1929, historic DeLake School has been a center for education for the children of Lincoln City. LCCC continues this tradition for ALL ages, offering classes in art, dance, music, literature, and theater.  The Lincoln City Cultural Center also sponsors play writing contests, fund raisers, and activities to encourage artists of all ages. 

The Mission  of the Lincoln City Cultural Center is to enrich our community through art and cultural events in the historic Delake School. Our vision is to have the Lincoln City Cultural Center support community economic development by promoting a successful center for the visual and performance arts. 

Along Oregon's central coast, Lincoln City Cultural Center invites all ages through its doors, with offerings of creative classes, activities, exhibits and events that are designed to enrich the life of our Lincoln City community and to celebrate the artist in each of us.

Come join us as we present a center for learning, with gallery exhibitions, dance and musical performances, poetry readings, film festivals, and other entertainment for all members of the family. Members support the Cultural Center by participation in art events and classes, payment of membership dues and volunteering their time and resources.
