CAA Connect is Live

posted by CAA — Sep 12, 2016

connect-logoWe are pleased to announce the launch of CAA Connect, our new digital discussion platform and resource library. CAA Connect is a user-friendly social hub offering discussion communities with topic threads, the ability to post and share many forms of media, and the opportunity for collaboration across disciplines. We hope that many of the cross-disciplinary and scholarly conversations that occur at the Annual Conference each year continue on CAA Connect. Registration will open next week for the 105th Annual Conference in New York, February 15-18, 2017.

We are launching CAA Connect with a series of starter communities that address important issues for visual arts professionals. Below is a list of the starter communities that are accessible for all CAA members and the names of those who have offered to facilitate discussion in the communities.

To contribute to community discussions, please log in to CAA Connect (click “Log In” in upper right of home page) using your existing CAA Account credentials.  If this is your first time logging in to CAA Connect, you will be prompted to accept CAA Connect’s Community Guidelines before continuing.  Please review the CAA Connect tutorials for a quick overview of the platform.  Once you have signed in to CAA Connect or your CAA account, you will automatically be logged in to both sites and you will be able to switch back and forth without logging in again. The CAA member directory will now reside on CAA Connect. By default all members are included in the searchable directory. To learn more about how to be excluded from the directory, read the “Logging in and Profile Setup” tutorial in the Welcome to CAA Connect community.

Most importantly, we want CAA Connect to grow with our members, to be influenced by the work and focus of our members. Look for a survey in early October asking you what communities and types of content you’d like to see on CAA Connect. We can only build the right kind of platform to push forward the visual arts with your help.

Please contact us if you have any questions at all.

We look forward to the discussions!
