Bindlestiff Studio, San Francisco

The bold, physically and emotionally layered work of creative nonfiction located in the year 2048 highlights the state of humanity in the United States, 150 years after the US bid for global power began.
The Asian Pacific Islander Cultural Center of San Francisco (APICC) announces the 21st Annual United States of Asian America Festival 2018. Festival events will run May -June 2018.
This year’s theme, Regenerative Community, explores what the API community does in order to care for ourselves, our community, and our culture. The festival highlights our collective regenerative practices - how they have evolved and how they are vital to our sustainability, including historical traumas Asians and Pacific Islanders have faced and how they have shaped our history, our culture, and present. The theme also mines how we as a community address these traumas and work towards a future of healing and restorative justice. Most poignantly, our festival programs investigate how the API community renews and sustains its drive and passion to be artists, organizers, cultural workers, and community leaders in the face of oppression.
