Aloha Mākena Haumea Art Experience
Honoring Nurturers and Designed By Wailani Artates
Saturday, March 4th, 2023
5:30 PM - 8:30 PM
Mākena’s Nāulu Farm
Free Community Event
HAU YOU? A deeper look within.
Mākena Golf & Beach Club is excited to host an Let Go Let Grow art experience that looks to Nurture the Nurturers! In Hawaiʻi, Haumea is recognized as “Earth Mother,” the soft earth elements necessary for growth and the life process. On Saturday, March 4th we celebrate those who serve our Maui Community in a Haumea capacity:
Hale Makua: compassionate personalized care
Hospice Maui: comfort and dignified care
Hui no ke Ola Pono: traditional healing and capacity building in each family
The night of creativity will be lead by award-winning artist, Wailani Artates of Artistry8. The night includes a hoʻolauna (meet the space and each other), pū paʻakai (enjoy dinner together and aloha kekahi i kekahi), and ends with a Let Go, Let Grow art experience designed by Artates.
Following a quick demo of lāʻau kāpala (print/stamping with plants), Artates’s Let Go, Let Grow art experience will include individual kāpala on provided plant pots using mea kanu (plants) from Mākenaʻs Nāulu Farm. Then, event goers will be invited to write on lau (leaves) things they want to release and also things they want to grow. These leaves will be intentionally buried in their art pots with mea kanu provided by Nāulu Farms. Each guest will be able to take home their own thoughtfully decorated plant to mālama (care for) at home.
Seating is limited and is first come, first serve. This event is offered in a Donate What You Can exchange model. Tickets are free, however the Mākena Golf & Beach Club asks that event goers consider making a donation directly to Hale Makua, Hospice Maui or Hui no ke Ola Pono in exchange for attending this event.
