C.CRED [Collective CREative Dissent]: C.CRED started out in the late 90s as the artistic collaboration [ in ] and developed, in the early 00s, into an artist collective in the broader sense of the word. Based in London, UK, but operating largely as a nomadic and event-based platform for the development of critical forms of dialogue and conviviality, self-organized modes of collective learning, and collaborative forms of social and political research and intervention, the overriding concern of the collective was to foster links between art and aesthetic practices and the wider socio-political contexts in which they are situated. Since 2001 various people have been involved with the collective in different capacities, some more permanently, others on a project by project basis.
