The Centre for Contemporary Photography (CCP) is the pre-eminent Australian organisation for the exhibition of contemporary photo-based arts.
In April 2005, CCP relocated to purpose built galleries at 404 George Street, Fitzroy. Designed by leading Australian architect Sean Godsell, CCP quickly built a reputation as one of the most impressive exhibition spaces in the country.
CCP is an ideal setting for functions, celebrations and meetings. Easily accessible by public transport, CCP is only 2km from the CBD. An exquisite, functional and contemporary space, CCP consists of four separate exhibition areas, a furnished education space (which can act as a functional meeting room), and a retail store.
The modern interior, unique surrounds and cutting edge photo-media exhibitions offer a prime setting for organisations and businesses to hold functions and entertain clients.
CCP can provide accessible and informative tours of exhibitions and artists’ floor talks.
As CCP is open to the public Wednesday to Friday 11am – 5pm, and Saturday to Sunday 12pm - 5pm, the use of the space is subject to availability.
A range of hire options are available. We warmly welcome inquiries.
