“Normal” is not a word that would describe this year. Shifting to remote work, cancelling events, and changing schedules are just a few of the many ways we departed from normalcy in 2020. Despite the challenges, the CaFÉ team is sincerely grateful for the continued support from all of the artists and arts organizations who adapted to the times and did not let the arts community fall silent.
Thanks to this dedication, we have made several achievements that we are proud to celebrate. We released improvements to the juror scorecard, launched a brand new help center for administrators, and updated our artist site to be more secure. This year also marked our 15-year anniversary and while we were not able to celebrate in the way we imagined, we look forward to celebrating even more milestones in the years to come.
While we know 2021 will not magically make the hardships disappear, CaFÉ will continue to be a reliable resource for helping arts organizations connect with artists. We are also planning on celebrating new milestones as we implement even more updates to the site, including a fully revamped design of the CaFÉ administrator site!
Stay tuned for more information about that upgrade, but for now, take a look back at CaFÉ’s highlights from 2020.
