Research Associates 2021
Each year five CCA Research Associates are selected through an open call (with at least two from Northern Ireland) for emerging research-based practices. Over a two-year tenure Research Associates have the opportunity to access to our archives and networks with the potential to develop longer-term projects with CCA and our wider programmes. An annual event brings the associates to CCA to share their practices with each other and our audiences through workshops, performance, lectures and more. CCA also acts as a critical friend and supporter to help them develop their practices.
