MAY 17, 2013 – San Francisco, CA – Project by Project San Francisco (PbP SF) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that supports non-profit organizations creating a positive impact in the Asian American community. Each year, the three chapters of Project by Project (PbP) decide on a theme and select a local non-profit organization supporting the Asian American community as its partner. In the spirit of PbP’s 2013 theme of The Arts, PbP SF announced today that it has named multidisciplinary arts organization, Kearny Street Workshop (KSW), as its non-profit partner.
Founded in 1972, KSW is the oldest Asian Pacific American multidisciplinary arts organization in the country. In 2013, the volunteers of PbP SF will work to further KSW’s mission of nurturing intergenerational, cross-cultural, multidisciplinary artistic activities that honor the historical and cultural heritage of the Asian Pacific American (APA) community within the Bay Area. Throughout the course of the year, PbP SF will work to raise public awareness for KSW and help support the return of KSW’s signature arts festival, APAture, which will examine the work of emerging APA talent in film/video, literature/book arts, music, performance, visual/installation art, and experimental media. On September 14, 2013, KSW will be featured as the beneficiary non-profit at PbP SF's annual food and wine tasting benefit, Plate by Plate, at City View in San Francisco.
PbP SF serves the San Francisco Bay Area and 2013 will mark the organization’s fourth year in support of positive causes in the community. Past partners include APA Family Support Services (2010), Oakland Asian Educational Services (OASES) (2011), and Project by Project (2012). Through partnerships with these local non-profits, PbP SF has raised awareness for each of these organizations through fund-raising activities and by highlighting each as the partner non-profit beneficiary for the organization’s annual Plate by Plate benefit event. PbP SF is looking forward to activating even more young professionals this year to engage them in supporting KSW and issues related to this year’s theme of The Arts.
