Kollaboration New York 2013 Launch Party

Come celebrate with Kollaboration New York as we kick off their official launch party and the premiere of their 2013 music video!

With less than two months until one of the most highly-anticipated annual talent competitions of the year, this season’s show includes 10 finalists who have been going through rounds of auditions since the beginning of the year, to finally score one of the top 10 coveted spots. From dance crews to singers to rappers, the finalists are already gearing up for the chance of a lifetime to make it to LA for the $20,000 grand prize. Past Kollaboration NY competitors will also be gracing our stage at this much-hyped-about launch party.

For more information, and to check out videos of the finalists, visit www.kollaborationnewyork.org.

This event is co-presented by Kollaboration NY and the Asian American Writers’ Workshop.


Kollaboration New York is an annual talent competition show and movement entirely produced by Asian and Pacific Islander (API) professionals and students throughout the New York City area. We are proud to be part of the larger, nationwide Kollaboration movement which spans across twelve major cities across the US and Canada.

Our primary mission is “Empowerment through Entertainment,” and we are dedicated to providing API youth with a creative outlet to showcase their talents on stage. By hosting shows across the nation, Kollaboration seeks to gather diverse Asian American talent and bring their presence into mainstream media and the entertainment industry.
