As a new generation community oriented arts hub committed to discovering and nurturing emerging artists, CAFA houses a breadth of ideas and mediums spanning from photography to fine arts to musical performances. We believe that our environment of bringing different genres together will create positive synergy in reaching a wider audience and initiating an interdisciplinary dialogue.

CAFA is dedicated to serving the arts community by providing a space to create, exhibit, and perform original artwork. In our location will be an Intellistage equipped with speakers for various performing arts, exterior LED Screen, rotating gallery with over 100 feet of wall space, projector screen, and photo studio equipped with the highest technology cameras available for rent.

Our facilities and services are made available for free to all artists who need a space, especially emerging or under-recognized artists who would most benefit from the exposure at our prime location on the crossroads of 6th Avenue and 23rd Street.
