“Empowerment through entertainment.”
Kollaboration is a global platform to discover, empower and connect the next generation of artists and leaders to mainstream media prominence and change culture.
Kollaboration is an annual talent showcase, official non-profit organization and grassroots movement that exists to change the status quo of mainstream media. Our mission is build bridges, out-create negative stereotypes, and promote diversity.
The Kollaboration community is a beautiful combination of artists, fans, generous sponsors, and large network of hardworking volunteers. The Kollaboration movement leads a paradigm shift of perceptions and blazes a trail for Asian Americans to make their mark in arts and entertainment.
Kollaboration has grown in the last 14 years and is run primarily by passionate volunteer staff in our current 14 city chapters – Atlanta, Austin, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Detroit, Honolulu, Houston, Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, Seattle, Toronto, & Washington DC.

Stand-up comedian Paul “PK” Kim founded Kollaboration in 2000 as a platform for aspiring Korean American artists to share their talents and pursue those “impossible” “unrealistic” creative careers. Over time, the LA-based talent competition and showcase spread to several other cities in North America and became a pan-Asian Pacific Islander movement and official 501c3 non-profit organization in 2006.
