Göttingen maintains three cultural centers in which many dance, music, art, and theater groups meet. Courses are usually organized by the groups themselves and are available at very low price. Many theater and music performances as well as theme-based festivals take place in these centers.
In the seventies, the Göttingen Communication and Action Center (KAZ) was founded. It is located right in the middle of the city and functions as a contact point for many groups.
The culture and performance center MUSA is slightly outside the city. It offers various Workshops for e.g. Dancing, Painting, Music or singing. At Weekends, a lot of band play at the MUSA.
The House of Cultures is an intercultural center.
