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.

@ 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.

Beyond Eating Local: Using History as a Guide to a New Food Security

@ VOL 18 ON AUG 16, 2013

Josh Lanthier-Welch is a Punahou, Berkeley, and Columbia grad but his self-taught culinary skills began at the age of 16 to impress girls. He has always alternated white collar jobs with restaurant work and slowly allowed food to take over his creative brain. While in San Francisco, he began to work primarily as a chef and later was convinced in late 2009 to return to Honolulu by his brother to start a little ice pop company.
