cc contemporary art space first made its mark on the art scene in 2006 as a place to showcase mixed media contemporary arts and events in the region. An inspiring track-record of curated exhibitions has been established as a platform for contemporary ideas and dialogue in the heart of the City of Gosford NSW Australia around depth dimension themes - social justice & peace, environmental sustainability and intercultural perspectives.
