PlayBuilders Fostering Ohana Ensemble Photo.jpg

"Fostering Ohana" with PlayBuilders of Hawaii

Currently there is a shortage of 70 foster homes on Oahu. National Statistics on Foster Children aging out of the System share dismal outcomes; only 58% graduate high school by the age of 19; less than 10% go on to college; 1 in 5 will become homeless; 1 in 4 will be incarcerated within two years of exiting the system. For most former foster children, problems exist in forming stable cohabiting situations, parenting and social relationships.

In an effort to help find more high quality foster homes and as a way to reach out to former foster youth, PlayBuilders of Hawaii Theater Company, in collaboration with Partners in Development, Queen Lili’ouklani Children’s Center, Catholic Charities, Hawai’i and other foster care helping organizations, is developing a play with the assistance of former foster youth, ages 18 to 26, while teaching them the art of acting and dance for one year, on Sunday nights at the ARTS at Marks Garage. In the spring of 2017, the finished play will be rehearsed and taken on a state-wide tour as a way to educate the public about this very  important issue and hopefully recruit more foster homes. For more information on this project please go to www.playbuilders.org or contact Terri Madden at terri.madden@playbuilders.org.

 

 

Concierge Desk for Chinatown and Downtown Honolulu

 

First known as the Hawaiian village of Kou and later Honolulu, the best deep sea port in Hawai'i facilitated the growth of Chinatown and Downtown Honolulu. The area became the island's business and cultural hub, a bar, red light district, and gateway for Hawai'i's immigrants, especially the Chinese and the Japanese. For over 200 years, this is where locals have come to shop, dine, and play.

The Chinatown and Downtown area has undergone a renaissance in recent years and has become the trendiest destination for local restaurants, clothing boutiques, novelty shops, and live entertainment. The ARTS at Marks recently received a Flipkey Trip Advisor award for best museum worth traveling for!

The ARTS at Marks Garage serves as Chinatown and Downtown Honolulu's visitor and information center, with information and guides on what to do, eat, and see. Come by and say hello next time you're in the area!
