CCP
Centre for Contemporary Photography

The Centre for Contemporary Photography (CCP) is Australia’s premier venue 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. In 2005 CCP relocated to purpose designed premises by Sean Godsell Architects.

CCP’s exhibition program is presented across five 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 welcomes proposals from emerging and established artists, as well as curators and writers.

CCP participates in annual and biennial festivals, develops off-site projects and events and frequently collaborates with related art and community organisations. The Centre is active in touring exhibitions across Australia.

Located in Fitzroy, Melbourne, Victoria, admission to CCP is free and is fully accessible for wheelchairs and prams.
