- BREAKING THE BOW: The 1st Annual Independent Asian Pacific Islander Performing Artists and Writers Festival – Shattering the disparity between up-and-coming artists and writers and their established professional counterparts, smashing the chasm between Hollywood movers and non-traditional and independent-minded talent, demolishing the divergence between the young, hip, Youtube artists and those who paved earlier inroads, the festival is an artistic explosion of positive images not normally seen in mainstream media. Never before has such a coalescence of diverse groups ocurred with an ultimate goal of education, outreach building and strengthening the community through the arts.
