Los Locos

@ VOL 18 ON AUG 16, 2013

During a lecture Sergio Garzon gave at the Pacific Health Conference in 2012,
he came across the idea that art therapy is a gentle, free and an evident cure for many mental illnesses, specially those dealing with social-dynamics. His “Los Local” presentation focuses on using art as a form of free health therapy on the streets.


Loco Tapping

@ VOL 18 ON AUG 16, 2013

Keone Nunes had grown up exposed to family members who still spoke the native Hawaiian language and elders who still remembered the tribal practices of their past. His talk will touch on the art of tapping, a rare technique left in the world. Instead of relying on an electric machine and a steel needle, Nunes makes his own tools and even his own ink when tattooing in this very rare ancient way.


Bringing Obama Home: A Presidential Center in Honolulu

@ VOL 18 ON AUG 16, 2013

Robert Perkinson is a professor of American Studies at UH. He’s leading the state of Hawaii’s initiative to build a Barack Obama presidential center in Honolulu.


POW! and WOW!
