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 photo-based media.
CCP presents education and public programs for students, photographers and members of the public; including photography courses with Les Walkling, an annual lecture series, and regular floor talks with exhibiting artists and tours for groups. CCP is also active in publishing and producing exhibition catalogues.
The exhibition space houses the CCP shop, which includes photography-inspired gifts and products, books, catalogues, contemporary arts publications, and artist commissioned works.
