Maui is in the midst of a historic agricultural transition. 

The redevelopment of the sugar cane lands will affect our lives on Maui for generations to come.  Do you care about what life will be like on Maui as the central valley changes?


The #mālamalama project is a two-year creative placemaking initiative that uses the arts (such as film, media, music, food) and the cultural traditions of our local community to embrace, educate and empower the people of Maui as we begin the agricultural transition and to illuminate the proactive solutions available to us at this time.
