HOLOMUA KAKOU – "Moving forward together"

Aloha and Welcome to the Hawaii Artist Collaboration! We are a non profit 501 C3 dedicated to the power of cooperation and collaboration amongst artists , arts organizations , and educators with the goal of creatively facing the challenges of the future. We sponsor an annual gathering that bring as many of these people together as possible , as well as special events during the year that can be shared throughout our island community.

Our Premier event is the Annual COLLAB! Gathering. This event was conceived as a gathering place where kupuna and master artists can recharge and reinvigorate their work through a sharing of knowledge and skills. Hawaiian meets international and contemporary artists from as many as 14 different media, and the results of 4 days of making together are available at an auction immediately following the event. People leave collab with bothe new energy and connections to take back into their own communities where the next generation can benefit from the recharged teachers.
