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.
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.
While the collection for the anthology is ongoing through the year, Anthology is rolled out in the Spring semester.
