MoMo Night: Mo'olelo Movement Series
Join us every 3rd Thursday of the month throughout 2018. The Arts at Marks Garage is dedicated to building upon the commitment of co-creating an arch of Hawaiian storytelling.
April's series will be themed around the understanding and concept of Ho'oulu meaning to lift up, to release, to grow. Guest storytellers will share mo'olelo around this concept through their writings and community work they proliferate.
Loosely modeled after the Moth Radio show concept, the goal of MoMa Night is to provide local community and visitors to visual and oral storytelling by the Hawaiian community, yielding a new level of understanding and appreciation for the root culture of Hawai'i - not just in terms of the past, but the ongoing challenges and successes in the present and future. Community collaborations will include Pu'uhonua Society, PA'I Foundation and other Native Hawaiian artists, practitioners, scholars and organizations.
