Hawai'i Arts Alliance is building creative lives and communities through education, advocacy and celebration of all arts in Hawai'i.
Research show us that motivation to learn, to stay in school and seek advanced education is significantly increased with a complete education that includes the arts. We cannot underestimate the power of the arts to transform lives. The Alliance advocates for arts education not just because there are impressive statistics about raising test scores or increasing earning power, but because when the arts become integral in all our lives, we are changed fundamentally
Teaching the arts
Ensuring that all the arts are a central part of the education of every child
Building community through the arts
Using the arts to improve the quality of life and create opportunities for positive growth, especially within disenfranchised communities.
Promoting the arts
Speaking out about the importance of the arts, demonstrating the value of the arts, and expanding access for all to a rich array of arts.
