PAʻI Foundation in partnership with Ford Foundation, Artspace and The Cowles Center was asked to be a part of a Distance Learning program in which we would be able to connect our artists and students to those in other places, such as First Peoples Fund in South Dakota and Spoken Word in California. After months of trying to get a connection, we are ecstatic to announce that PAʻI and First Peoples Fund has made a connection via Distance Learning! A great part about it was that Naomi Chu (Artspace Representative in charge of Distance Learning) was here in Hawaiʻi and was able to witness the first Distance Learning Connection!
We would like to mahalo Ford Foundation, Artspace and Cowles Center! Without you folks, this would not be possible!
