"States of Emergence(y): Ruptures, Entanglements, Reimaginings" (2021)
NOW ACCEPTING CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS (deadline is March 5, 2021)
THEME: This year has been one of constant ringing alarms. As Asian, Pacific Islander, and Desi Americans, we are always contending with the urgent, emergent, and transient experiences of war, migration, colonization, assimilation, and belonging. Within the chaos that has emerged over the past few months, we are all now at the crossroads of catastrophe. We must reach out to the entanglements that connect us to one another across history, geography, and generation; the fluid vectors of life spilling into life. How we emerge from this state of emergency hinges on a rupture of the status quo, a reimagining of what it means to be APIDA and to stand in solidarity. We invite you, as APIDA artists, writers, creators, visionaries, and dreamers, to reflect on the ruptures, entanglements and reimaginings in your life – as we map a better way forward through this emergency.
