Canadian Architecture Forums on Education:

The Canadian Architecture Forums on Education (CAFÉs) are part of a year-long outreach project to discuss and debate the role of architectural education and research in shaping Canada’s future.

The knowledge and ideas mobilized through these forums will inform the development of an architecture policy for Canada. The forums enable students, educators and academic researchers to play meaningful roles in articulating the policy’s priorities, ambition and depth of vision.

CAFÉ Prairie will consist of presentations, round-table discussions and dialogue with students, faculty, regional guests and visiting delegates from other Canadian architecture schools.

This CAFÉ initiative is led by the Canadian Council of University Schools of Architecture (CCUSA), representing all CACB-accredited architecture programs in Canada, with the support of a Connection Grant from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC). Further support is provided by participating university institutions and the Canadian Architecture Students Association (CASA).
