USAAF 2017 - THREADING RESILIENCE
The Asian Pacific Islander Cultural Center of San Francisco will present the 20th Annual United States of Asian America Festival: Threading Resilience.
Selected individual artists, arts groups, and arts organizations for USAAF 2017 will present their full-length arts event productions (i.e., a minimum of 45 minutes of performance time) occurring within the city and county San Francisco during May 2017.
FESTIVAL THEME | Subject(s) of the program(s) and/or event(s) will focus on themes related to Pacific Islander and Asian American themes and culture, connecting specifically to this year’s theme of Threading Resilience:
- How has identity and visibility for APIs in art and politics evolved and where are themes of identity heading?
- What intersections and collaborations in art, identity, and politics have shaped, connected, and strengthened our communities amidst forces of oppression in mainstream culture and media?
- How have we utilized placemaking for our community throughout history and today? What will it take to ensure the collective survival of these spaces for future generations?
