Spotlight On: AAPI Heritage Month

This May, we're spotlighting Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, a time to reflect and celebrate the contributions and influence of folks in the AAPI community. From Japanese sea shanties and South Indian classical dance to the Kunju style of Chinese opera and North Indian bhangra hip-hop, we invite you to explore the beautifully varied works brought to life by AAPI artists from all different cultures and contexts. Like our spotlights on other identities this year, these themes are neither mutually exclusive nor limited to a single month; they cross over, connect, and build on one another. We hope you revisit this page beyond this month to honor AAPI communities and their tremendous impact on the arts.

AAPI programming is supported by Angela Chao and Jim Breyer
