CCFT core reseachers - is a group of artists, architects, designers and cultural theorists from England, Scotland, Norway and Cyprus whose practices, individually (and collectively), seek to consider the role of artistic research in shaping the legacies of place within the contemporary social landscape. Through the lens of each other’s research and evolving relationships, a collective work platform has emerged through trust and dialogue. The core researchers approach focuses on practice-based research methods including; painting, drawing, photography, video, sound, sculpture, text performances, publication, events/exhibition, on site installations, design communication, social design, architecture, interventions and spatial practices that are engaged in constructing and questioning narratives of place making, place meaning and belonging.
Research is constituted through the methodology of travelling colloquia carried out in specific cases for study. These cases for study are constructed as interwoven, overlapping and interrelated meetings, investigations and dissemination points.
