CCFT is a peripatetic international research group, made up of artists, designers and architects, that contributes to discussions about interdisciplinary practices and how they articulate critical insights about place and displacement, place making, marginality, belonging and occupation.
Building on our contribution to Buffer Fringe 2020 – ‘fluid territories: nomadic on-line dialogue’ – and our physical participation in the festival in 2019 – ‘The Urban Glenti’ – CCFT proposes a further development of our online dialogues between internationally dispersed contributors. A programme of creative exchanges, taking place over a period of 3 months, will happen via Zoom and will be made available primarily within a dedicated web portal in the public domain.
Within ‘CCFT nomadic on-line dialogue 2 – new fluid territories’, CCFT members will explore the concept of ‘new fluid territories’, through a dialogical process with a changing group of invited participants, in virtual space: it will take the form of an evolving creative dialogue between our core members, into which we will invite other international voices (visual, sonic and textual). The concept of ‘new fluid territories’ will allow us to delve behind the ideas of belonging and displacement that were at the core of last year’s festival, and to creatively explore ideas of place with community, environment, permeability, sustainability and flux as positive attributes.
Our live process will be captured and published within a dedicated web portal in the public domain: https://www.researchcatalogue.net/view/976547/976548 with other formats potentially emerging as the process evolves.
