APIA Affairs puts together an annual anthology containing creative work made by APIA-identified individuals who are either students, faculty, staff, or alumni of the University of Florida, or community members of the local Gainesville area. The APIA Affairs Anthology provides a record of the APIA experience and showcases our community’s unheard voices and stories through an unfiltered and authentic artistic medium. While the collection for the anthology is ongoing through the year, Anthology is released in the Spring semester.
2020 APIA Affairs Anthology
Breaking the silence, living in our truth
The theme focuses on exposing what was hidden from our past. It could be what our parents face to have us be successful. What did they hide to have everything we need? It could be a personal one as well. It is to show the double life that we may experience. What did you have to be silent about and hide that needs to be brought up? Break the silence, for it is your truth.

2019 APIA Affairs Anthology
Be a Voice, not an echo
Often times when we express ourselves, it is from the perspective of others. Now is our time to be ourselves and express who we are.
Be a voice for those who are unable to.
Be passionate about what you do and what you believe in.
Express yourself. Stand out and be unique. You do not have to follow the status quo.
PRODUCED ANTHOLOGY TBD.

2017 APIA Affairs Anthology
This year’s anthology will explore the various taboos that we encounter in our lives. Things we “shouldn’t say” or “shouldn’t do”. Topics we are told to shy away from. As we navigate the world around us, we should take time to reflect on what makes taboos, well, taboo and express our own thoughts on them. Whether it be through written or visual mediums. Real. Raw. Unapologetic.
