APAture 2017: Unravel

  • 1246 Folsom Street San Francisco, CA, 94103 United States (map)

Examining our stories, hxstories, narratives, beliefs - what are the interconnected threads we wish to investigate and untangle? What is there to discover when we unravel?

APAture is a multidisciplinary arts festival featuring the work of emerging Asian Pacific American (APA) artists local to the San Francisco Bay Area. Coinciding with Kearny Street Workshop's 45th Anniversary, this year's festival will showcase talent from artists unraveling their stories in film, literature, music, performance, book arts, and visual arts. From September 30 to October 28, over 60 artists will present their work to approximately 1,000 festival-goers across multiple dates and venues in the South of Market area.
