WAILUKU ARTS DISTRICT MANAGEMENT PLAN
The National Endowment for the Arts has awarded a 2022 + 2023 Grants for Arts Projects grant to the ST*BA collective to deliver a public art master plan for the County of Maui, which will include a Wailuku Arts District management plan.
A Wailuku Arts District Management Plan Advisory Committee comprising arts programs, businesses and cultural practitioners is meeting (and evolving!) regularly to establish a public-private partnership that will implement the Wailuku Arts District vision.
Slated for delivery in 2023, this massive effort to coordinate facility and public space planning, management, maintenance and collaborative programming will result in an interconnected destination that maximizes the public’s opportunities to experience, learn and celebrate the arts.

On 6/14/22, 20 arts organization directors representing Wailuku nonprofits and the spaces that collaborate with them gathered for a huakaʻi on Da Bee, which transported us from @maui_onstage to @mapamaui to @halehoikeike and @imuadiscovery so that we can more accurately begin to lift one another up in our collective plan to create a Wailuku Arts District.
