CAF (Culture, Art, Fashion) is a not-for-profit foundation developed by Thomas Haugen, founder TFM and supported by international artists, entrepreneurs and government leaders.

CAF was conceived with the intention of building bridges and generating global awareness for the Culture, Art, and Fashion industries in diverse societies.

CAF is a foundation developed by the industry for the industry. It is inspired by the economic, educational and artistic potential of the creative industries in emerging countries and communities. It believes that highly creative people and trends are currently being ignored because of cultural and political boundaries and a mindset that stereotypes creative activity in emerging hubs.

CAFs strategy is simple and direct: We partner with companies, associations and institutions in emerging countries and together tailor a platform that will support and educate their local creative industries so they may operate successfully in a global marketplace.
