About Centre for Contemporary Photography (CCP)
Centre for Contemporary Photography (CCP) is the leading contemporary arts space in Australia dedicated to photography, video and related fields.
Exhibiting and promoting work by local, national and international artists, CCP is a not-for-profit membership based organisation that was established in 1986 by the photographic community. Entry to CCP galleries is free, encouraging visitation from all sections of the community.
Positioned as a key generator of contemporary visual thinking and located in the inner Melbourne suburb of Fitzroy—surrounded by creative producers, artists and artisan cafes—CCP is a progressive, dynamic organisation responding creatively to changes in technology, visual communication and world events.
CCP occupies a unique place within the Australian contemporary arts sector; a place where emerging photo-based artists can gain a formative experience in the development and staging of exhibitions; where practicing photographers can find new audiences; and established artists can experiment with new directions.
Core activities of the Centre for Contemporary Photography include the exhibition, commissioning, education, and appraisal of contemporary practice as well as advocacy, publishing and artwork sales.
