HoMA: Eating Up Easter + Community Conversation: Regenerative Tourism And Restorative Economies In Hawaiʻi

July 11, 2020 @ 4:00 am - 6:00 am


From the Honolulu Museum of Art:

Inspired by the film Eating Up Easter, which examines cultural preservation and the impacts of tourism in Rapa Nui, the Honolulu Museum of Art (HoMA) is proud to host a timely community conversation featuring local changemakers who are re-envisioning our local economies, questioning business as usual, and working to ensure the future sustainability for Hawaiʻi. The conversation will focus on the current impacts of tourism in light of COVID-19 and how we can consider the practices of regenerative tourism and restorative economies in our community’s path forward. As tourism in Hawaiʻi begins to open up again, these challenging conversations are vital as we navigate new ways of functioning as a society. Join us as we bridge conversations between a diverse panel of local innovators and creatives.

The event will be free to the public with RSVP. Please be sure to use a valid email when registering. After registration, you will receive a link via email to access the screening when it is available. We recommend entering the screening room about 10 minutes prior to the start of the show. The link to the screening room will also be published on our Facebook event page. If you have any questions regarding registration, please contact ddt@honolulumuseum.org.

Moderated by filmmaker Sergio Mata’u Rapu, the live conversation will run approximately 90 minutes: a 60 min moderated panel will be followed by a 30 minute audience Q&A. The conversation will be preceded by a free online film screening of Eating Up Easter.
