From the Executive Director and Board Chair Dear CCAE Community,

This past year—one for the history books—has been a tough one! And yet, CCAE, through its long history, has met challenges before—world wars, economic depressions, cultural revolutions, cosmic shifts in taste and habits. Nonetheless, there’s no question that the COVID-19 pandemic hit us hard, posing a direct challenge to our long-standing mission of face-to-face, community-based learning. The story of this last fiscal year has really been one of agility, talent, and hard work on the part of CCAE staff and instructors to find a way to alter our way of operating to meet this emerging threat. It was only a matter of weeks, as COVID made in-person learning impossible, before the program staff devised a plan for online learning as well as a strategy to educate both our instructors and our students about how they could continue to enjoy CCAE classes online. Over the months of the pandemic, more and more instructors, coached by our staff, learned online teaching techniques that made their classes both accessible and interactive. Increasingly, our students started to embrace virtual learning. We were encouraged to note that people across the country and the globe were enrolling in our classes. Clearly online learning was a good thing and would continue to be part of our future! CCAE’s stalwart supporters determined early on in this crisis that our institution would withstand the challenge—as it has so many others. Long-standing and new donors stepped up to make up the considerable tuition shortfall over this period, initiating a CCAE COVID-19 Relief Fund that raised over $660,000—an amount that is helping us to operate into this coming year. It was heartening to realize that so many students—many of them first-time donors—made a gift to ensure that CCAE would survive. It is still a time of change and uncertainty as we enter the new fiscal year. And yet, we have learned some valuable lessons. As we reopen our facilities to in-person classes, online learning is likely to be a part of our ongoing strategy and curriculum. Our staff has shown itself to be adaptive and creative. Our donors and students are generous and motivated. Our community continues to thrive. So we will, indeed, survive this challenging time, as we have so many others. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for helping us to do so! Best Regards,

Linda Burton, Executive Director

Christian Nolen, Chair, Board of Directors

A Year of Online Learning

Our online class offerings continued to grow this fiscal year and despite a year of “distance learning,” we made many new connections.

Traveling the World

We saw new and exciting programs such as our Food and Cultural Experiences series which brought great chefs and instructors from around the world—from Indonesia to Mexico to South Africa—to students’ home kitchens.

New Languages

We introduced the classical language Latin with Joan Brunetta in our world languages department in the spring, which sold out for two consecutive terms. Students learned basic vocabulary, explored Ancient Rome, wrote epigraphs and more together via Zoom.

Creating Together

We developed new online Studio School classes, Painting the Interior and Painting through the Window with Jeremy Durling to give our students new perspectives on their at home settings. Students learned about oaxaca and mole almendrado from Carina Santiago’s kitchen in Mexico

Forging Friendships

New Russian literature classes with instructor Paul Karpuk saw lively discussions and returning students. The group continues to meet together with their instructor outside of class to continue their discussions.

Claudia Waite:

In-Person Learning

What classes have you taken? What was your favorite and why?

We offered a small selection of in-person classes in Fall 2020, Spring 2021, and Summer 2021, such as Lettura e conversazione in italiano with Pasquale Q. Tatò, Open Studios for Metalsmithing and Jewelry, and Storytelling as Performance. We were thrilled to offer over 170 in-person classes in Fall 2021!

I have taken SO MANY cooking classes since the original Covid-19 shutdown, that it would be impossible to choose a single favorite! Living out in the hilltowns of Western Massachusetts during the Covid closure, the selection of takeout foods was severely limited. However, I had access to small, family run grocery stores that specialized in South Asian foods. So, when email marketing from CCAE made me aware that classes had moved to a virtual format, I focused on ethnic cooking classes: Thai, Japanese, Indian, Chinese, Korean, and Spanish, all come to mind. I also took several baking classes to expand my bread baking capabilities and improve my cookie/ cake decorating skills. What are some of the challenges of online learning?

We love to see students in our buildings safely enjoying classes like this one in our jewelry studio

I found little downside to online learning. In fact, it allowed me to participate much more frequently than I ever had before. I didn’t have to worry about scheduling, commuting, or parking. I was always given more than enough time to shop for supplies, prep my ingredients, and enjoy the comforts of cooking in my own kitchen. As Covid vaccines became available and restrictions lifted, I also had the pleasure of inviting friends to arrive for a meal at the end of class! It has been a win-win for me!!

Connecting Outside of the Classroom

Conversations on the Edge

The most attended Conversations on the Edge with Jill Lepore and Robin Young explored the importance of civics in the present day

“What we do at the Blacksmith House is simple—and profound. We bring together people who love poetry, who are open to the possibility therein. The past year afforded, via a different format, an intimacy none of us could have imagined, when we all needed that, and the community of each other so much.”

The Cambridge Community Foundation’s The Conversations on the groundbreaking report on Innovation and Edge series was started at Equity Cities provided an “on the edge” conversation for our esteemed panelists CCAE in 2017 as a discussion series focused on controversial and pressing issues—bringing together local experts, thought leaders and community leaders with differing perspectives on these important topics. The ‘20’21 season, sponsored by First Republic Bank and the Cambridge Community Foundation, was fully online for the first time in its four years. We saw a record breaking 150 attendees attend our Conversation with Jill Lepore and Robin Young in November 2020 on the Importance of Civics. Other highlights include a Conversation on Policing in Cambridge in October 2020 and a discussion about Cambridge Community Foundation’s groundbreaking report on Innovation and Equity Cities in April 2021. For more information and to see our upcoming season, visit ccae.org/conversations

Blacksmith House Poetry Series

Blacksmith House Poetry Series (BHPS) was also fully online for its 47th year in the ‘20-’21 season. The 14 BHPS evenings in this past season brought in several well known poets and BHPS loyals, including Joyce Carol Oates, in addition to our New Voices night which introduced emerging poets to BHPS audiences. To see past recordings and for more information on our upcoming season, visit ccae.org/blacksmithpoetry

Art Openings

CCAE’s two art openings presented over Zoom provided another way for students and instructors to share their work with each other and the greater community, and also to connect outside of the classroom. Home Work featured artwork created from the artists’ homes, in private studio space, en plein air, or in an online CCAE art class. Art and Escapism invited artists to express how they escape everchanging situations through their art. We had a total of 92 attendees to both shows—which showcased a variety of mediums. Many family members and friends of the artists were able to attend because the opening receptions were presented online—a special added benefit!

“Odyssey, Of Course! was permeated with a very special spirit of creativity and joy— just a really fun gathering!” —ODYSSEY, OF COURSE! ATTENDEE

A Journey of Adventure, Fun, and Friendraising for CCAE On May 18th, our community was invited to celebrate online learning, exploration, and community on a CCAE Odyssey with different cultures, new flavors, and personal quests. The event began with an introduction and cooking demonstration from acclaimed French chef Jacques Pépin, followed by a zany online Zoom play about a CCAE-like cooking class “gone horribly wrong.” Odyssey, Of Course! guests were offered a number of choices for breakout sessions that made the event even more special with experiential learning—session leaders included local and national superstars such as Car Talk Guy Ray Magliozzi, S+H Construction Owner Sarah Lawson and popular CCAE instructors. There were a panoply of choices—from weaving to beer-tasting, and, as a bonus for attendance, each guest reserved his or her very own personalized Bag of Treats, which included a sample of Cabot Cheddar Cheese, a passport notebook for future travel, and individualized supplies for each session. Sponsor 90+ Cellars ensured that all of our guests could join in for a toast to give a festive culmination to the event with a split of Prosecco!

“Maria Felicita [Fichera] is so knowledgeable about opera. She teaches with such passion for the topic. I somewhat enjoyed opera but never really took the time to understand the stories. In class she presents everything about it including what was going on in history at the time in Italy and Europe. All of this combined gives you a real sense of the opera, composer and the story. I’m so glad I participated.” — CARL I., DIAMOCI DELLE ARIE!

Financial Status

As we transitioned CCAE classes from in-person to online during this pandemic, our tuition revenue suffered a considerable decline. Nonetheless, eventually we were able to maintain 63% of the prior year’s tuition. We cut our operating costs significantly—a decrease of over 30%. At the same time, donations, grants and federal government stimulus aid helped us to make up the difference. We showed an increase of 41% in those categories—allowing CCAE to survive and emerge from the pandemic in a position of strength. OPERATING INCOME AND EXPENSES FY21*

Social Connection

CCAE’s #StudentShareSunday series continued this year as a way of connecting with students and highlighting what they created in our online classes. This past year, we increased our use of Facebook ads to drive traffic to our website. As a result our Facebook traffic is up 79.2% over Fiscal Year 2020. For FY22, we plan to incorporate more videos on our social media platforms.

The launch of our new website in February 2019 continues to be extremely beneficial. As our first fiscal year without a print and mailed catalog, the website is the source of the majority of our marketing efforts with many students citing internet searches and our website as how they learned of our classes. We are beginning to see gains in our users and sessions over Fiscal Year 2020 data, as seen in May, June, and July 2021. Website Users

CCAE in the Community

CCAE strives to uphold its position as one of the oldest adult learning centers in the country—one that takes very seriously its active participation in the life of the community, and that gives back to that community. While our annual partnerships with Community Servings, Perkins School for the Blind and On the Rise were suspended in FY21 since we could not continue to offer their constituents free in-person classes, we have been active in other ways during this year of physical distancing and online learning. Thanks to a connection from a member of our Board of Directors, we formed a partnership with Prospect Hill Academy (PHA), a K-12 college preparatory public charter school located on three campuses in Somerville and Cambridge. PHA has nearly 1,150 students from diverse racial, ethnic, and economic backgrounds. 87% are people of color, nearly two-thirds are low-income, and approximately half come from homes where English is not the primary language spoken. Our ESL instructors, headed up by Francesca Ferraris, began a very successful and ongoing program of free classes to non-English speaking parents of students at PHA. We have formed a new partnership with St. Francis House, a Boston homeless shelter, which rebuilds lives by providing refuge and pathways to stability for adults experiencing homelessness and poverty. We are offering a complete scholarship forw up to two of St. Francis House clients per term to help them in their transition to independent living—by taking classes such as web design and entrepreneurship.

We are proud to partner with Lesley University’s Threshold Program, a post-secondary certificate program for college-aged students with diverse learning, intellectual, and developmental challenges. For more than thirty-five years, this Lesley program has been helping students with disabilities navigate life with confidence. CCAE gave a presentation in the course Navigating Independent Living for students in their final year of the Program during which they live in their own apartments in the Cambridge-area. Cornucopia: An Intercultural Conversation about Gratitude Last fall, CCAE hosted a free, open-to-the-public online partnership event with the Universidade de Caxias do Sul (UCS) in Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil. Students from the Modern Languages Department there shared brief presentations about what they were grateful for in 2020. Their presentations were themed around the region where they live in southern Brazil. The students, among them many future English teachers, enjoyed the opportunity to connect with our CCAE community, to engage with participants connecting from near and far and reflect on the theme of gratitude in the week prior to Thanksgiving. In the more intimate setting of breakout rooms, each presentation gave us the opportunity to travel virtually and encounter traditions, food, nature, dances and, of course, the wonderful drink Mate. We ended this inspiring evening by sharing reflections on gratitude. This partnership was initiated by our CCAE ESL instructor Liz Ging and attended by CCAE community members all over the world. And we’re happy to say that this event will be reprised in 2021!

Our Great Challenge for Fiscal Year 2022 Reinforce our CCAE Community!

As we began this new fiscal year on August 1st, we felt hopeful that a feeling of normalcy would resume at CCAE. We were planning a fall term with a good portion of classes conducted in person, others continuing online, and looked forward to having staff members back in their offices after Labor Day. The Delta variant shifted those plans. 46% of fall term classes were offered in person, down from the number we initially planned. Staff will continue to work remotely part of the week. We will continue to honor the City of Cambridge Mask Mandate, and require all students enrolled in in-person classes to show proof of vaccination. Nonetheless, it is a great feeling to open our two historic buildings back up to the public again and to have our staff back in place to welcome students. CCAE remains very flexible—ready to adapt and to see how in-person classes can work during this time of COVID uncertainty.

At the same time, we continue to welcome online learners—local and international—and look for ways to improve and enhance our techniques to make online classes uniformly excellent. This coming year is a challenge, and more than ever, we need the support of our donors and students to make sure that CCAE continues to be the important and relevant institution it has been for the last 150 years in Harvard Square!
