Centre for Contemporary Photography Information
Centre for Contemporary Photography (CCP) is one of Australia's pre-eminent galleries for the exhibition of contemporary photo-based arts, providing a context for the enjoyment, education, understanding and appraisal of contemporary practice.
Established in 1986 by the photographic community as a not-for-profit exhibition and resource centre, CCP has played a pivotal role in the support of photo-based arts and public engagement with photography.
CCP's exhibition program is presented across six exhibition spaces, including the Night Projection Window viewed from George and Kerr Streets after dark, and features a diverse range of photo-based arts from emerging to established artists. The program includes individual, group and curated exhibitions representing the very best of local, interstate and international photography.
CCP presents education and public programs for students, photographers and members of the public including photography courses with Les Walkling, an annual lecture series, regular floor talks with exhibiting artists and tours for groups. The Centre is active in publishing, producing exhibition catalogues.
The Centre includes CCP Shop; including new and second-hand books, LOMO cameras, catalogues and gifts. CCP is also available for function hire.
CCP is supported by the Visual Arts and Craft Strategy, an initiative of The Australian, State and Territory Governments; by the Victorian Government through Arts Victoria and the Community Support Fund; and by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body. CCP generates over 50% of its income and enjoys strong community support with a paid member base of over 600. The Centre also receives financial and in-kind support from a variety of corporate sponsors and philanthropic bodies, and is active in fundraising through regular events. Donations are gratefully received and are tax deductible.
