Hālāwai proudly announces the
NewYorkPacificIsland Time Awardees
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Hālāwai is presenting NewYorkPacificIsland Time to virtually strengthen ties between New York City and Hawaiʻi through cultural connection and artistic inspiration. This program celebrates the connections between Hawaiʻi and the Pacific Island diasporic communities of the New York region. Our goal is to recognize artists whose livelihoods have been most urgently impacted by COVID-19. Each awardee is recognized with $500 and artistsʻ works will be posted here on June 7th, the originally scheduled date of our now postponed Annual Potluck Picnic in Central Park. Additional awardees may be named based upon donations and available funds.
This program is supported in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with The City Council.
