Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

The problems we are most interested in addressing are the decline and suffering of our magnificent coral reefs and wild lands. We also want to highlight the need to support locals who practice traditional and contemporary traditions in the Arts, but don't have access to gallery space and funding. Our other main focus is new development and construction and the ability to influence decision makers kn these projects to choose more sustainable options in their planning.

COMMUNITY ART GALLERY

MAJOR PROJECT ACTIVITIES:
The HCRGF Art Gallery project will be a resource for everyone in the community, including amateur artists who wish to improve their skills and display their work. Staff and volunteers will also be invited to submit works, and many of these are already displayed on our website – www.hcrgf.org. Visual works are also featured on our website and can be purchased or commissioned by the public as well. These include murals, photography, film, sculpture, and any other creative projects. Artists will be encouraged to celebrate their cultural heritage and also to depict the natural environment.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

We want to establish community art galleries and offices for participants to have a safe and welcoming place to work and display their projects. This is to especially include people with disabilities, LGBTQIA+, Veterans and all who feel strongly about protecting our natural environment through expression and activism.

Our strategies for making this happen are to utilize grant and donation funds to establish our galleries in Hawai'i as well as in other cities on the mainland withing the next 5 years. These galleries will also serve as work spaces and eventually may offer artist residence hosting options. In addition to providing space for work and displays, artists and other participants can sell their work online and onsite with a percentage of the profit going back to our charity. Professional artist and photographers can also donate, sell and/or display their work in coordination with our conservation efforts. We also sponsor "Earth Games" (coming soon") - this would include our proposed annual "Fishing Tournament". - the purpose of which is for native and traditional fishers to participate and teach their knowledge to our volunteers as well as to eventually influence commercial fishing in more sustainable methods. This would also include detailed data collection sheets that will be distributed to participants to records weather, oceanographic, wild and plant life date per US Fish and Wildlife, NOAA, USDA and other data collection standards. Another of our Earth Games is a similar "Observegraphic Scavenger Hunt" which is designed for people of all ages and abilities who live near sensitive reef and other wild habitat to learn to collect detailed data on their natural environment. Other Earth Games we are currently developing are "Moped Olympics" and "Tacos for Trash" which are designed as beach cleanups with free food and festivities available for volunteers.

We are currently applying for both Federal and Private funding as well as donations online. The organization is capable of hosting an unlimited number of art works only e and will soon be able to provide the galleries and events on the islands of Hawai'i as well as other inhabited cities with critical habitat nearby.

So far we have begun developing the Earth Games projects and have identified several possible sites for our galleries. We have also established our online profiles and are continuously seeking funding via grant writing to multiple Federal, State, Local and private sources.
