I would just like to share a couple of news items regarding the preparation for the 12th Festival of Pacific Arts in Guam. This is the grandest Pacific festival of them all and will take place in Guam on May 22- June 4, 2016. The theme for the festival is:
“WHAT WE OWN, WHAT WE HAVE, WHAT WE SHARE, UNITED VOICES OF THE PACIFIC” Håfa Iyo-ta, Håfa Guinahå-ta, Håfa Ta Påtte, Dinanña’ Sunidu Siha Giya Pasifiku
The first news item is that the floral art committee will be holding free workshops on floral art inspired by Micronesia. The workshops are to provide the committee with much needed experience in planning and coordinating activities in preparation for the 12th festival. The workshops will be held on April 25, June 6, and August 8, from 2 to 5pm at the CAHA Art Gallery in Hagatna, Guam. During each workshop, floral art from specific Micronesian Islands will be demonstrated. Then, the audience will be invited to create their own. The workshops will provide the floral art committee with much needed experience in planning and coordinating an activity that will be a prelude to the much larger scale of the Pacific Arts Festival in 2016.
