One Beautiful Tradition at a Time.
If you are reading this it is because you have, in some way, touched our lives here at PAʻI and made a difference. It is also because we wanted to share with you the difference the PAʻI Foundation has made, and continues to make, with the support of caring, generous friends like you.
With your support*, the PAʻI Foundation was able to:
- support 91 MAMo Native Hawaiian artists; providing 32 events such as arts markets, gallery exhibitions, and the popular Wearable Arts Show which attracted 21,134 attendees,
- provide 288 class hours of hula instruction, in a studio setting, for over 60 students,
- provide 370 interactive master class hours in cultural traditions including chant, Hawaiian composition, Hawaiian language, bamboo stamping, kapa making, Hawaiian string-storytelling, and featherwork for over 292 participants,
- provide the first cohort of the Intercultural Leadership Institute, a collaborative program of Alternate ROOTS, First Peoples Fund, National Association of Latino Arts and Cultures (NALAC) and the PA’I Foundation. The Intercultural Leadership Institute is a year-long rigorous personal and leadership development program for artists, culture bearers and other arts professionals,
- accept the invitation to host the Festival of Pacific Arts & Cultures 2020 in Honolulu,
- schedule the January 2017 groundbreaking of Ola Ka ʻIlima Artspace which will provide 84 affordable artist lofts and the new PAʻI Arts Gallery & Performing Arts Center,
- celebrate the naming of Vicky Holt Takamine as the 2016 USA Doris Duke Fellow of Traditional Arts,
- ...and so much more!
There is so much more to do and we canʻt do it without YOU!
