The theme of the All Schools Exhibit this year is “E ‘onipa’a i ka ‘imi na’auao – Be steadfast in the seeking of knowledge”, which was the motto of Queen Lili’uokalani. Waimea students, their family members, and teachers were invited to interpret the Queenʻs motto in a variety of ways. “The Waimea Education Hui  holds our community so dear and the cultural heritage that has been left for us to perpetuate and practice,” said Pua Case, a hui member and the art exhibit’s coordinator. “One purpose of the exhibit is to truly spread the message to the students and the community that we are all one school, and to provide cultural learning opportunities to keep the legacy of Waimea alive,” she said.
“Kahilu Theatre is pleased to present this exhibition in partnership with the Waimea Education Hui.” says Deb Goodwin, Executive Director of Kahilu Theatre. “The program is aligned with our practice to deliver visual arts experiences that honor our roots and reflect the diversity of our community.”
