APAture 2018: RE:place
CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS
APAture 2018: RE:place takes place October 19 - November 4
APAture is Kearny Street Workshop’s annual multidisciplinary arts festival celebrating emerging Asian and Pacific Islander artists of the Bay Area. For 16 years, APAture has been a site of dialogue, collaboration, and political action between artists and community members around contemporary issues affecting the Asian and Pacific Islander community.
This year, our theme is “RE:place.”
We invite you to submit work including but not limited to: displacement, reclaiming place, relationship or orientation to place, movement and migration, the loss or lack of place, or the various dimensions of place (spatial-emotional, past-present, individual-communal, etc.). We also welcome work across all themes.
What is APAture?
APAture is Kearny Street Workshop’s annual multi disciplinary festival that showcases emerging Asian and Pacific American artists from the Bay Area. Each year, this two week festival is organized by a volunteer run General Planning Committee who help curate each showcase.
APAture has six showcases held at various locations around the SoMA District of San Francisco: Book Arts, Film, Literary Arts, Music, Performing Arts, and Visual Arts. Each showcase is a one day event, except the Visual Arts showcase, which will be on view until the end of the festival.
