CAFKA – Contemporary Art Forum Kitchener and Area is a non-profit, artist-run organization that presents a free biennial exhibition of contemporary art in the public spaces of the City of Kitchener and across the Region of Waterloo.

Since its beginnings in 2001, CAFKA has had three defining aspects: It is about contemporary art, it is about the city of Kitchener and the Region of Waterloo, and it is a forum – a place where we can exchange ideas, share reflections and consider the project we are engaged in. Come and hear artists, curators, and critics talk about the artists, the art work, and the CAFKA.16 vision.
