701 CCA offers:
• Exhibitions with a regional, national or international scope in the center's 2,500 square- foot gallery
• An artist-in-residence program in a 1,200- square-foot live/work unit, where artists can concentrate fully on creating art during six, ten or twelve-week residencies
• The 701 CCA Plus program at the gallery, in between exhibitions, for performing, literary and media arts
• Educational programs for adults and children, including workshops, lectures, open studios, panel discussions, group tours, school presentations , etc.

Located in the former community center in Olympia, an historic mill village, all exhibitions and residencies during 701 CCA's inaugural year will engage the legacy and materials of the textile industry, mill villages and mill workers.
