APAture 2019

Submit by June 30, 2019


In honor of the APAture’s 20th Anniversary this year, 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.


Festival Returning October 4, 2019


APAture is Kearny Street Workshop’s annual multidisciplinary arts festival that presents and promotes a range of art by local, emerging artists of Asian and/or Pacific Islander descent. For seventeen seasons, the festival has sparked dialogue around the most pressing questions and central concerns of our day, particularly those impacting the Asian and/or Pacific Islander communities. APAture has also spurred collaboration between artists and the Bay Area community at large.
