The Vanuatu Cultural Centre, founded in 1959, is the national cultural centre of Vanuatu. It is located in Port Vila. Describing itself as "an organisation that works to record and promote the diverse cultures" of Vanuatu, it is an umbrella organisation which includes the National Museum of Vanuatu, the Vanuatu Cultural and Historical Site Survey, the National Library and the National Film and Sound Unit. Its aim is to record and promote the traditional indigenous cultures of Vanuatu in their various aspects -from sand drawing to music, land diving, other "customary practices" and "indigenous knowledge"-, but also the country's "contemporary arts and music".
