APAture: A Window Into the Art of Emerging Asian Pacific American Artists

APAture is a multidisciplinary arts festival that will showcase new or in-progress work by 75-100 emerging Asian Pacific American artists from the San Francisco Bay Area.

Kearny Street Workshop, the oldest Asian Pacific American (APA) multidisciplinary arts organization in the United States, proudly presents APAture: A Window Into the Art of Emerging Asian Pacific American Artists, our signature festival happening from October 4-26, 2013.

After a three-year hiatus, APAture returns to present and examine the Bay Area’s brightest emerging talent in film/video, literature/book arts, music, performance art, visual art, and experimental media. The purpose of APAture is to provide a platform and build audiences for emerging artists; to strengthen the sense of community among our artists; to develop the next generation of leaders in the arts; and to raise awareness of the creativity and diversity within the APA arts community. For the first time in the festival’s history, events will be held at venues in Oakland, as well as San Francisco.

We invite you to help us make this festival a reality by making a donation today! Our goal is to raise $7,500 by Friday, September 27, 2013 to underwrite production costs and support the emerging artists for whom APAture is a unique space to explore their work and ideas. With 8 exciting events, 75-100 participating artists, and an expected attendance of 1,500 - 2,000, your contribution at any level is guaranteed to make an impact.

APAture is coordinated by an all-volunteer, peer-based committee that is composed of artists, students, community workers, aspiring curators, and young professionals, who work in close collaboration with the Kearny Street Workshop staff.
