As a member of the Alliance of Artist Communities, PRESENT establishing Hawai’i’s place as part of a network of residencies around the world, building capacity in their communities in the creative industries.

With guidance from leaders in the field, PRESENT is looking to the future to develop its programming and “best practices” as a sustainable model of artistic excellence and business planning. An organization’s sustainability goes beyond covering costs; it is based on integration between strategic planning and building financial reserves.

Please help us lead as an example of holistic practice where our mission to provide time and space for artistic research within a context of community engagement and social practice is balanced by a solid fiscal foundation.

Our vision starts with you. Every penny makes a difference!
