CCP Education visits
CCP exhibitions span multiple disciplines in traditional and contemporary photo-based arts. A diversity of perspectives across five gallery spaces offers scope for engaging with and understanding how different artists work creatively. The gallery provides a valuable opportunity to view and respond to artwork first-hand and gain insights into the contemporary art industry.
Guided Floor Talks
Wednesdays to Fridays, 11am to 5pm
Floortalks are presented by CCP staff who will introduce students to the artistic themes and content of CCP’s current exhibition program. Staff can also discuss insights into the art industry content for VCE upon request for an additional fee.
Teachers are encouraged view the Exhibition Program for further details about current and forthcoming exhibitions when planning an excursion.
Artist talks are available upon request, subject to availability, for an additional fee.
Free Artist Floor talks
CCP will hold free artist floor talks the Saturday following the opening of exhibitions, at 12pm.
This is a great opportunity to hear the artists talk about their work first hand, ask questions and find out more about their practice.
