About Us

Our Mission

National Asian Artists Project (NAAP) exists to be a leader in educating, cultivating, and stimulating audiences and artists—current and future—through showcasing exceptional work by vibrant artists of Asian descent. Art constantly evolves, and NAAP strives to command a place at the fore with a uniquely compelling American voice.

Our Goals

NAAP believes that artists of Asian descent have many vital roles to play in the fostering of American communities.

  • Through thoughtful educational programming, we seek to present the richness of theatre arts to underserved children, fostering creative self-discovery and expression.

  • Support the artistic growth of theatre artists of Asian descent through professional employment opportunities.

  • Build and cultivate new local and national audiences that encourage patronage and participation in the arts, including predominantly Asian communities unaccustomed to playing a role in the local or national arts dialogue.

  • Capture and archive stories of prominent artists of Asian descent that they may be made available for future generations from which to learn and inspire.
