Since coming to Hawaii, we were eager to get a feel for the art scene here. From talking to locals and doing our own adventuring we've discovered that artists here have a resounding knack for looking out for one another. As soon as we expressed that we were artists, locals were ready to welcome us into their already tight-knit community with open arms.
One of the places that was recommended to us was the neighborhood of Kaka'ako. Partnered with Kamehameha schools, Our Kaka'ako provides a space for artists to showcase their talents and collaborate with others while also reinvigorating the community culture with local businesses and supporting schools.
