TRADES Artist in Residence program benefits visiting artists and people of Hawai‘i mutually and equally. We view sharing and exchange as fundamental modes of learning and community building. We forge connections. Beyond a residency’s usual provision of time and space, TRADES foregrounds place.

TRADES, along with the University of Hawai‘i, now welcomes the return of Kanaka Maoli artist Tiare Ribeaux with collaborator Jody Stillwater for November 2021. In February of this year, Tiare and Jody (Lenape Creative Group) curated an in-person/online screening of short films organized around the theme of “Mythic Temporalities” with a discussion moderated by Marika Emi (co-director, Aupuni Space). They now return as part of a multi-year film and multimedia project Manawa Iki, Manawa Mau Loa (A Moment, An Eternity) focused on healing from intergenerational trauma by reengaging with Kanaka Maoli understandings of (a)temporality and cosmology. In this phase of the project, Kō Kākou Manawa (Our Time), Tiare and fellow Kanaka artist Nanea Lum invite fellow artists to participate in a series of workshops to co-vision multimedia projects that utilize and uplift Hawaiian heritage, narratives, and culture.
