Inaugural 2024 Grant Awardees

Hoʻākea Source announces the inaugural group of 10 awardees receiving funds from $5,000 to $10,000. Grantees will have one year to bring to life a range of projects centered around ʻāina (that which feeds), pilina (relationality), and huli (change).

A trio of external review panelists convened to discuss applications and select this year's awardees from 38 total applicants.

Projects celebrate the diverse practices of artists of Hawaiʻi and take many forms including a zine, exhibitions, dance party, non-narrative short film, feature length experimental documentary, multimedia live performances, mapping and data visualization, community and student-centered workshops, ceremonies, and events.

These grantees will have the opportunity to bring their artistic endeavors and visions to life over the next year, presenting their finished projects in venues and communities of their choice. Hoʻākea Source looks forward to seeing their projects come to fruition and making a positive impact on the local arts ecosystem in Hawaiʻi and beyond.
