The Bay Area’s own Kearny Street Workshop has been the cornerstone of local and national activism for nearly 50 years.

“Art made by people of color is inherently political,” said Jason Bayani, Kearny Street Workshop’s artistic director.

“I’m so grateful to Kearny Street Workshop for providing me with the opportunity to get up onstage,” Wong said in a statement accepting the Kearny Street Workshop Focus Award in 2017.

During the 1970s and ’80s, Kearny Street Workshop hosted annual Japanese Oshogatsu celebrations, the Ap-Apong-A-Baak Filipino culture fair and the Chinese Hop Jok Fair.
