Inaugural Concert for EHCC's Out-of-Doors Arts Program

This Saturday at 1:00 and 3:30 we present the inaugural concert of the East Hawai'i Cultural Center’s Out-of-Doors Arts Program, which will use our newly built AARP Livable Communities Stage to present free theatre, dance, music, hula, poetry, spoken-word, readers-theatre, and lectures. Home base for the stage is a just-created outdoor sixty seat space, previously unused, on the EHCC grounds. The stage is mobile and will travel to various locations, so that EHCC can create “Culture on Demand.” With this pop-up theatre EHCC plans to break down economic and geographic barriers to the arts by meeting local communities where they live. We plan to stage performing arts events at neighborhood venues such as libraries, parks, schools, senior centers, etc. Using the philosophy “Culture belongs to everyone” the hope is to present self-contained events that unleash the creative potential of our artists and our audiences to build stronger communities through artistic interaction and collaboration. This venture is made possible by a generous donation from the AARP Community Challenge grant program ( Please join us!
