When We Shine Foundation is a fully accredited 501(c)(3) non-profit arts advocacy corporation. We strengthen and enrich communities through the Arts, through arts education projects, arts integration and our social artistry network partners.
We are based in Maui in the Hawaiian Islands, the home of aloha. The concept of aloha is a model for mindful living and has a greater meaning than hello and goodbye. Aloha teaches us how to treat ourselves, others, the land, the waters, and all existence, a reminder of the sacredness of life.
THIS IS HOW WE SHINE
We work towards our Mission, Vision and Purpose through implementing arts integration, creative place-making & social artistry programs that grow strong social systems and networks for healing & for human services, especially as it pertains to women, children and the environment.
Our latest project
Heart of aloha
Fourth grade students and teachers from Pomaika'i Elementary School on Maui worked closely with When We Shine Foundation to design a public health campaign that engages residents and tourists with the expressed goal of respecting and caring for one another and the Hawaiian Islands during the Covid-19 Pandemic, the Heart of Aloha featuring John Cruz.
