APAture 2008: Call for Submissions

June 26, 2008

Happening this year in mid-September, Kearny Street Workshop's APAture is an annual multidisciplinary arts festival presenting the work of emerging Asian Pacific American (APA) artists living and/or working in the San Francisco Bay Area. APAture's mission is to provide emerging artists with an early experience presenting their work at a large event; to build audiences for emerging artists; to strengthen the sense of community among our emerging artists; and to raise awareness of the existence of and diversity within the APA arts community. APAture values community-building, ethnic and artistic diversity, and collaboration across ethnic and disciplinary lines.

APAture includes a visual arts show, film screenings, workshops, panel discussions, literary readings, performances in spoken word, music, dance, theater, and other performance genres, and an area for zinesters and comic artists to display and sell their work.

Each year APAture also features a select group of artists who exemplify the work being done in their discipline.

Learn more about APAture here. All submissions must be postmarked, delivered, or submitted online by Friday July 7, 2008.

Even if you don't submit anything, this is a great opportunity to get involved and meet a lot of great people. Hyphen is one of the proud media sponsors again this year, so you know we'll be there to join the fun and to see what y'all come up with!
