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.
Founded in 1972, during the height of the Asian American cultural movement, Kearny Street Workshop (KSW) is the oldest APA multidisciplinary arts organization in the country. KSW offers classes and workshops, salons and student presentations, as well as professionally curated and produced exhibitions, performances, readings and screenings.
