MAPID and JANM to present FACES event

Mavericks of Asian Pacific Descent (MAPID) and the Japanese American National Museum will present "FACES" (Furthering AsianPacificAmerican Content in Entertainment Summit) on Sunday, March 20, 2011.

The summit will take place from 12-2pm followed by an Expo from 2-4pm at the Japanese American National Museum's George and Sakaye Aratani Central Hall. The Museum is located in Los Angeles' Little Tokyo.

About the Summit:

FACES Summit and Expo is a dialogue for the API community and its supporters. APIs have gained international attention for their online presence and are breaking new ground in the recording industry. But APIAs are travelling to China to learn Mandarin with an eye on leaving Hollywood. While APIs have yet to gain significant power in Hollywood, it is thought that we were on the brink of never-before achieved success.

At this critical juncture, what can the API community do to further insure API Content and Faces in entertainment?

Organizations will have the opportunity to listen and respond to its constituency and community, and artists will be able to share their needs and ideas. Those who have achieved a level of success can offer valuable insight on tactics. Together APIs can address the issues and brainstorm solutions.

Arising out of this exchange, a galvanized and unified strategy can help further APIs in entertainment. Organizational delegates from film/TV, theater/live event, music, literary, visual art, dance, studio, community, guilds, press, investors, agencies, and beyond are invited.

Individual artists are especially encouraged to apply.

About the Expo:

Following the summit, an Expo will be held. Organizations will provide literature and food will be offered at the tables for one-on-one meets, greets, and eats. Some entities may accept material from individuals and attending organizations.

Due to space limitations, FACES is able to accommodate a maximum of 225 attendees for both the summit and expo. Application selection process is based on implanting a balanced cross-section of attendees.
