The next National Asian American Theater Conference and Festival is taking place in Philadelphia this year, October 8th-12th, 2014! The ConFest is currently entitled "Home: Here…There… Where?".

Through the lens of the Asian American experience of migration and the search for a sense of “place” and equity on personal, community, and global levels, the ConFest will examine Asian Americans' relationship to broad definitions and meanings of home. Over 4 1/2 days, the 2014 ConFest will include 4 full-length productions, 2 performance showcases, 20 panel discussions or workshops, and 3 plenary sessions. Open-mic opportunities, video presentation sessions with artists sharing work-in-progress, neighborhood artist/open studio and community tours, new play readings, and open space sessions will round out the program.

More updates to the website to come! In the meantime, learn more about our previous ConFests:
