Peter Jang, Kollaboration Chicago discusses how the program was started to be a platform for local Asian American to showcase their talent. An annual talent show has winners performing in LA.
Kollaboration Chicago is a local 501(c)(3) that promotes the local Asian American talent in the performing arts. Kollaboration was created over 10 years ago in Los Angeles to provide a platform to showcase amazing local artists and has now spread to 13 cities across the country. Annually, Kollaboration Chicago highlights a select number of aspiring performers from the Chicagoland area in a showcase where the winner has the chance to compete against the other Kollaboration city winners in Los Angeles at Kollaboration Star.

This year, the showcase will be featured at Schubas Tavern on Saturday, July 8.
