Centrala exists to achieve inclusion and wellbeing for Central and Eastern European (CEE) migrant communities in England. We use arts & culture as our tools to advance social integration, understanding, respect and cohesion between migrant and non-migrant communities.

Centrala Space was launched in 2015 and has established itself as a Nationally and Internationally recognised centre for Central and Eastern European Art and Artists.

Centrala is a space created by Polish Expats Association CIC, a non-profit organisation set up in October 2009 to support the adaptation and integration of Eastern European migrants in the UK. Since April 2012 PEA is registered as a Community Interest Company and offers support to all Central and Eastern European communities. It came as a response to the need of creating a space and offering support to the newly arrived European Migrant Communities.
