CAFÉ: Last call for manifestos and input

The Canadian Architecture Forums on Education (CAFÉ) is issuing a last call for manifestos and feedback from architecture students and educators. Over the past year, the initiative has been collecting feedback on the effort to create a National Architecture Policy for Canada through a series of public forums and workshops.

“Thank you to nearly 1000 students, faculty and professionals who participated in the CAFÉ events,” writes organizer Lisa Landrum, associate dean (research) and associate professor at the University of Manitoba’s Faculty of Architecture. “This initiative involved 12 schools of architecture in five forums over one academic year – and we were lucky that the last CAFÉ took place just before social-distancing was enforced. While the CAFÉ events are complete, the online forum remains open.”

Here are the online forums that are still open for submissions:
