call for submissions: apature 2009

Calling all APA artists... Kearny Street Workshop, the oldest Asian Pacific American multidisciplinary arts organization in the United States, is now accepting submissions for the 11th annual APAture festival of emerging Asian American artists, happening September 17-26, 2009.

Each year, APAture showcases about 100 artists at venues throughout San Francisco, making it the Bay Area's biggest platform for Asian American art. I've attended APAture events in the past, and it's just a really cool showcase to get exposed to up-and-coming APA artists and interact with the Bay Area arts community.

APAture's mission is to provide artists with an early experience presenting their work at a large event; to build audiences for emerging APA artists; to strengthen the sense of community among artists; and to raise awareness of the existence of and diversity within the APA arts community.

They're currently accepting submissions in five disciplines: visual arts, film & video, literary arts and performing arts. The deadline to is submit is July 11.
