Let’s Stay Home—Together

How are you? No, really—how are you?

It’s been a year since our last Play On Words performance at the San Jose Museum of Art. Since then, the world has been broken open by the COVID-19 pandemic, civil uprisings and a seemingly never-ending presidential election. Though we had to cancel our spring 2020 performance, we are excited to announce that we’ll be partnering with the San Jose Museum of Art once more on June 17 for our first-ever virtual show.

Play On Words: New Terrains at the San Jose Museum of Art, January 2019.

Starting in March, we’ll be seeking original fiction, nonfiction, works of theatre and translation that center on Immigrant Heritage Month. What is generational immigration? How and why do people find themselves in new places? How does origin relate to originality? Check out our new submissions form to share your work with us.

Until then, we’re focused on raising money to pay for future artist honorariums. Thanks to our membership in San Francisco’s Intersection for the Arts, a nonprofit that provides people working in arts and culture with fiscal sponsorship and resources to grow, we can now accept tax-deductible donations. Our goal is to raise $1,000 by June 1. If giving financially is not an option for you now, we encourage you to spread the word so we can continue to incentivize artists to share and perform their stories.
