  • The ARTS at Marks Garage - Honolulu FEAST - June 7th, 6-8 pm

Attend FEAST and support local artists!

FEAST (Funding Emerging Art with Sustainable Tactics) is a public soirée that uses community-driven financial support to democratically fund new and emerging art makers. FEAST attendees will pay to attend a reception catered by the The nook neighborhood bistro and Uncle Clay's House Of Pure Aloha, and a portion of that payment will be set aside as a prize. While attendees eat, mingle, and imbibe, three artists will showcase their work and explain their proposed public art project. After the three presenters are finished attendees vote on which artist's project they wish to award the prize. Support the artists, the Chinatown community, and the Honolulu Biennial by joining us:

We are looking for talented artists with ideas for improving the community through art! On June 7th we will be hosting FEAST (Funding Emerging Artists with Sustainable Tactics), a micro-grant reception at ARTS at Marks Garage aiming to raise $1,000 in support of a public art project to enhance Pauahi Street in Chinatown. FEAST is seeking proposals to activate public spaces along this corridor to create a more enjoyable experience for pedestrians through artwork.

Any medium is welcome (dance, music, film, paint, chalk, street furniture, poetry, sculpture, etc.) as long as the artist can demonstrate how the proposal will benefit the community and make Pauahi Street a place for people to enjoy. Activation proposals can be event-based or semi-permanent. Please note, these proposals will be used to advocate for the installation of art in public space. No specific space can be allotted for all types of uses at this time.

Interested artists should submit their proposals to by midnight on Friday, May 26th. Proposals should include: Description of their proposal (500 words or less), description of how their proposal will positively impact the community (100 words or less), and evidence of past work (can send either website link, or work examples under 4 MB).

Artists will informed by Wednesday, May 31st if they have been chosen to present at FEAST. Submissions will be chosen on the creativity of their proposals, and impact on Pauahi Street and the community-at-large. The more detail artists can provide about their idea, the better. Please send any inquiries to
