Proposals are now being accepted from theatre companies and individual artists from around the country for the Third National Asian American Theater Conference and Festival to be held in Los Angeles, CA from June 16-26, 2011. This event is a continuation of the momentum generated by the National Asian American Theater Conferences and Festivals held in Los Angeles, New York City, and Minneapolis since 2006 and marks the very first time that both the conference and festival will be held simultaneously.
Los Angeles representatives of the Consortium of Asian American Theaters & Artists (CAATA), East West Players and TeAda Productions will co-host this much-anticipated event, titled New Directions. It expects to lay the groundwork for the next five years for the Asian Pacific American (APA) performing arts as a national movement toward a richer and more multicultural America.
CAATA, a newly formed 501c3, is committed to establishing an inclusive, responsible, and relevant national artistic voice for the rapidly diversifying Asian Pacific American collective. CAATA anticipates to host over 180 APA arts leaders, artists, and academics from around the country at the conference and festival — shining a light on the diversity of today's performing art forms, addressing the needs of a rapidly shifting cultural landscape, as well as recognizing a well-rounded representation from different ethnic and gender identifications.
Proposals are being accepted right now for Festival productions and Conference registration—so apply to be a part of APA theatrical history! For guidelines, applications, and additional information, please visit www.caata.net.
Festival Application Deadline: 11:59pm PST on Saturday, October 30, 2010.
Conference Application Deadline: On-going until capacity is reached.
