Windward Community College presents the 4th Annual Palikū Arts Festival, an interactive arts experience on Saturday, April 5, 10 a.m.–6 p.m. in and around the Palikū Theatre plaza and Hale Pālanakila art spaces. Last year’s festival attracted more than 4,000 visual and performing art and music lovers from all areas of Oʻahu. The festival is free to the public and open to all ages.
The Palikū Arts Festival is a hands-on opportunity to get involved in art, music, literature, theatre and movement guided by Windward CC art faculty and students. Attendees are encouraged to come in costume or festive clothing.
There will be two free Windward CC Hawaiian Youth Theatre performances of The Charge of ʻAiʻai at Palikū Theatre and shows at the Imaginarium. The festival also features a kanikapila with Kaʻala Carmack and Hoku Award-winning group Kaukahi. Attendees are encouraged to bring an instrument or voice to join in the fun on stage.
Windward CC art professors, instructors and their students will be on hand (with supplies provided) to assist those who want to express their creativity in a variety of ways—from painting, drawing and sculpting to moving, acting or making music, prints, masks, poetry and prose.
“We invite you to Do Art! This festival has an open and adventurous ’learn-by-doing’ vibe. We provide free art supplies and guidance, so you and your family can play. You can take home whatever you create.” said festival co-chair Rob Molyneux.
