Kearny Street Workshop is the nation’s oldest Asian Pacific American multidisciplinary arts organization.Once called a "model grassroots program" by the National Endowment for the Arts, Kearny St. Workshop was founded in 1972 in San Francisco's Chinatown. Its mission is to produce, present, and promote art that empowers Asian Pacific American artists and their communities. Today Kearny St. Workshop is still a thriving center where artists develop their talents, connect with each other, and stage exhibitions sharing their vision through posters, photography and poetry.
