APAture Call For Submissions


APAture 2017: Unravel | September 30 - October 28

APAture is Kearny Street Workshop’s annual multidisciplinary arts festival celebrating emerging Asian and Pacific Islander artists of the Bay Area.

For 15 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 “Unravel.”

Examining our stories, hxstories, narratives, beliefs what are the interconnected threads we wish to investigate and untangle? What is there to discover when we unravel?

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.
