POW WOW Hawai‘i
TED Talk by Kamea Hadar
Pow Wow Hawai‘i is a gathering of contemporary artists to engage with the broader community in the process and creation of art. In the annual event, local artists interact with artists from around the world at various sites around Honolulu to create art and transform neighborhoods, altering conceptions of contemporary art in an urban environment. Pow Wow Hawai‘i has also created an art school with over 45 students, developed a music program for children, facilitated panel discussions at the University of Hawai‘i and built a 5,200 sq. foot creative space.
Kamea Hadar, lead director of Pow Wow Hawai‘i, is featured in this recent TED Talk. Kamea is the youngest board member of the Hawai‘i Arts Alliance.
