Hoʻākea Source is a regranting program that furthers the mission of Puʻuhonua Society by creating new opportunities to support and honor visual artists living and working in Hawaiʻi and by affirming Native Hawaiian value-systems.
Hoʻākea Source embodies the teachings of the well known ʻōlelo noʻeau, Hawaiian proverb, "ʻike aku, ʻike mai, kōkua aku, kōkua mai; pela iho la ka nohona ʻohana." Indeed, those who recognize others are recognized, those who help others are helped—such is expansive family life. It is only through our mutual dependence on one another that we thrive.
Hoʻākea Source is a Regional Regranting Program Partner of the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts. The Regional Regranting Program partners with local arts organizations around the country to make grants to artists and collectives for projects that chart new creative territory in their communities.
The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts Regional Regranting Program aims to support vibrant, under-the-radar artistic activity by partnering with leading cultural institutions in communities across the country. The program allows the Foundation to reach the sizable population of informal, non-incorporated artist collectives and to support their alternative gathering spaces, publications, websites, events and other projects. The Foundation plans to expand this program with partner organizations in areas where the level of on-the-ground, self-organized artistic activity is highest.
