Regenerative Community: A Preview

Asian Pacific Islander Cultural Center presents an evening of storytelling and engagement at Regenerative Community: A Preview.  The showcase event features new works-in-progress from artist groups Kreatibo, The Rooted Recipes Project, and SamiSee before their final project events in the upcoming United States of Asian America Festival May-June 2018.

A talkback session will be held after each presentation where audience members can ask questions and provide commentary as the artists continue to strengthen their craft and projects. Explore these themes of art, community and wellness on April 7th, 7pm at the African American Art & Cultural Complex’s Hall of Culture.

Kreatibo | Memorya

“Memorya” weaves voices of emerging artists and elders with ancestral wisdom to highlight collective strength and resilience. This performance explores the role of healing and ritual within communities of resistance. Kreatibo has used video, movement and multimedia performance to center Queer Filipinx diaspora since 2003.

Artists: Penny Baldado, Tina Bartolome, Leila Be, Maiana Minahal, Trinity Ordona, Frances Sedayao, Tonilyn Sideco

The Rooted Recipes Project

Join us for conversation and storytelling over a shared meal. The family-style menu will explore ingredients and dishes across the AAPI diaspora, specifically Filipino, Lao, and Vietnamese food traditions. Throughout the meal, we encourage you to reflect upon the ways food has played a role in Asian American identity and resistance.

Artists: Kim Boral, Joseph Nontanovan, Aileen Suzara, Thuy Tran

SamiSee and Filipino Mental Health Initiative-SF | Kapwa Konnections

This arts showcase explores the Filipinx concept of Kapwa, or shared inner self, as a path to promoting community wellness. Celebrate the completion of the Kapwa Mural Project and enjoy youth performers, visual artists, and mental health advocates creatively engaging the Filipinx community to end stigma on mental health.
