MAKE A DONATION!

2020 and 2021 definitely had their challenges. Yet we persevered, and successfully mounted 2020's biennial program, Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost, over the summer of 2021. 2021 marks the CAFKA biennial's 20th anniversary as the longest-running, free public art forum in Ontario.

This year, as we celebrate twenty years of CAFKA, we have set a fundraising goal of $20,000 to continue bringing art, creativity, and innovation to the Region and beyond.

We're a small, artist-driven, volunteer fueled organization with limited resources, and we need your help to continue to engage our community in the spaces they encounter daily.
