FORD FOUNDATION GRANT TO ARTS
The Ford Foundation today announced it is awarding a three-year grant of up to $400,000 to the Hawai‘i Alliance for Arts Education that the alliance will use to work with the city to develop a culture and arts center in Chinatown.
The grant was announced by Miguel Garcia, acting deputy director of the Community and Resource Development Unit of the Ford Foundation. The grant will be for $100,000 the first year and is renewable for two more years at $150,000 a year.
Marilyn Cristofori, executive director of the alliance, said the non-profit organization dedicated to championing the arts, will use the money to grow the burgeoning culture and arts destination that has developed around the Hawaii Theatre and Mark’s Garage.
Garcia said the alliance “would act as a curator for the neighborhood’s identity as it goes from the past to the present to the future.”
