Kollaboration Dallas is an annual non-profit talent competition seeking to bring mainstream attention to Asian American and Pacific Islander (API) artistic talent. Kollaboration was created twelve years ago by Paul “PK” Kim in Los Angeles to expand representation of API in mainstream media and raise awareness of API issues. The Kollaboration movement has spread to 14 cities across North America and continues to rally students, businesses, community leaders, celebrities and performers across the API community together for the common cause of “Empowerment Through Entertainment.”
Kollaboration is a non-profit organization, completely run by volunteers, dedicated to the promotion of a strong Asian Pacific Islander presence in the entertainment and media industry.
