CCI registered as a charity in 2008 (number 1126253) after becoming a company limited by guarantee in 2007 (number 6301716). Artist Idit Nathan founded the original collective in 2002.
The CCI approach is to place the people we work with at the centre of the experience, in the role of researchers and experimenters. Artists and creative practitioners work alongside participants as facilitators offering them ideas to engage with, together with stimulating materials, extraordinary spaces and uncluttered time.
