This year, in honor of the 20th anniversary of APAture, our theme is DECLARE. DECLARE is an acknowledgement of both the legacies of our past and the legacies we’ll establish in the future. We invite you to submit work related to legacies, families (chosen, biological, or beyond), communities, decolonization, representation, futurism, agency, and more. We also welcome work across all themes.

APAture is Kearny Street Workshop’s annual multidisciplinary arts festival celebrating emerging Asian and Pacific American (APA) artists of the San Francisco Bay Area. For 20 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.

APAture 2019: Declare will showcase over 60 artists in book arts, film, literary arts, music, performing arts, and visual arts, and will present their work to approximately 1,000 festival-goers across multiple dates and venues in the South of Market neighborhood.

Come join us and help us celebrate our local emerging APA artists! You don’t want to miss this!
