This year we've asked artists to explore 'place,' including but not limited to: displacement, reclaiming space, 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.). How does 'place’ resonate with you?

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 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.

APAture 2018: RE:place 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 for the 17th year! You don't want to miss this!
