about

BACKGROUND
CCPRG was set-up by Cécile Chevalier in November 2011 with the support of current or early CCPRG members (Andrew Duff; Frances Hubbard; Paul McConnell). It is based at the University of Sussex. CCPRG is a student-led initiative that was created to provide a research platform to support practice as research through discussion, direct engagement with practice, multidisciplinary and cross-institutional collaboration and initiatives.

Every term, each member had an hour slot to discuss their practice, this was crucial to the running of the group, as it provided several opportunities to discuss the work on a more in-depth level. This meant that the number of members was limited to the number of speaking slots.

In October 2013, Micheàl O’Connell (moniker Mocksim)  took over the responsibility and management of the group with the support of four participants (Cécile Chevalier, Daniel Alexander Hignell, Nanette Hoogslag). Micheàl developed a series of online reviews reflecting each presentation and initiated the Found in Translation symposium.

In August 2014, Danny Bright and Daniel Alexander Hignell took the lead, bringing their new ideas and vision to CCPRG, with the support of the group committee.

Since September 2015 Thanos Polymeneas-Liontiris has lead the group, organising its activities and colloquia.

WHAT IT DOES
CCPRG considers how creative practice  explores, engages and  supports critical dialogues between media practice and theory, through  is various processes, methods and transference. The group aim to become cross-disciplinary and cross-institutional by opening its doors to practitioners from various department at Sussex and to other institutions such as the University of Brighton & the Royal College of Art, to forge a practice community, here, online and at the University  of Sussex.

The group aims to:
* Discuss: practice in all its form; to contribute all that we know and to forget all that we know to allow our knowledge and experience to expand
* Practice: to think through practice
* Explore:  thinking outside one’s own perspective and experience
* Collaborate: to encourage interdisciplinary and cross-institutional dialogue in the creative and critical practice research
* Methods: to inquire and discuss research practice methods and terminology – make ‘things’ accessible.

CCPRG is supported by the Sussex Humanities Lab & the Centre for Material Digital Culture, University of Sussex.
