It's gonna be hot. The APIA Spoken Word & Poetry Summit is a bi-annual gathering of progressive artists involved in the Asian Pacific Islander American community. Their mission is "to challenge the often peripheral and passive roles the artist is branded within the APIA community and the arts community at-large and to acknowledge the arts as a critical, elemental component in building, empowering and transforming our community and our selves."
