APANO’s Arts & Media Project (AMP) is a space for Asian and Pacific Islander artists, creatives, and community members to connect, build power, and advance political, social, economic, and cultural change. AMP was formed in 2014 as part of APANO’s emerging Cultural Work program. Since then, it has grown to a total of over 100 members, and it continues to expand and evolve. Anyone who self-identifies as API and is interested in using arts and cultural strategies to advance APANO’s mission is welcome to join.

AMP produces performances and events for our communities, such as our East Portland Arts & Literary Festival, and actively connects Asian and Pacific Islander creatives to each other.
