  • University of Hawai‘i Department of Theatre and Dance
  • The Alliance for Drama Education

“I am pleased to award grants to such a diverse and impressive array of organizations,”
said Hannemann. “These grants will help the groups and the City celebrate and showcase the artistic richness of our Honolulu. We thank these organizations for stepping up to the plate and helping to define Honolulu as a great city.”

            The grants program is intended to support performing arts organizations in creating new works that will be part of each organization’s future repertoire.

             This award program also helps to maintain the Mayor’s Office of Culture and the Arts’  mission  of ensuring that the culture and the arts are recognized, encouraged, and incorporated as an essential part of Honolulu’s social and economic life.
