The Kalihi-Palama Culture & Arts Society, Inc. (KPC&A) is a non-profit community-based organization with a 501(c)(3) tax exempt status.  The Society was first organized under the Model Cities Program and incorporated in 1972 for the purpose of providing education, training, and services in the area of culture and arts.  Although KPC&A’s primary target is the underprivileged population residing in the Kalihi-Palama area, special projects are provided on a statewide basis.

KPC&A offers affordable and accessible ethnic dance classes at various facilities located within the Kalihi-Palama district.  KPC&A reaches over 800 youth annually by providing free after-school activities.  See classes. 

KPC&A sponsors two annual cultural events: The Queen Lili’uokalani Keiki Hula Competition and the Malia Craver Hula Kahiko Competition.  Another project was the documentation of 135 hula resources who reveal interesting stories of their hula lineage and philosophies.  Their interviews

       along with photographs were compiled into two large format

      books titled, “Nana I Na Loea Hula” (Look to the Hula

      Resources) Volumes I and II.  A limited number of Volume II is

      available for  sale at our office.

       KPC&A receives funding from the State Foundation on Culture

       and the Arts through appropriations from the Hawai’i State

                                                            Legislature. Private donations are considered tax deductible.
