Pua Nā Pua 1st Annual Art Festival Celebrates Artists
With and Without Disabilities!
Keauhou, HI – The first annual Pua Nā Pua Art Festival will debut in the Keauhou Shopping Center courtyard on Saturday, August 13 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. This free event will inclusively celebrate the work of artists with and without disabilities, featuring artwork and handmade crafts, artisanal goods, musical performances, a silent auction, free face painting for the kids, and mouth-watering food and ice cold drinks for sale.
The Pua Nā Pua Art Festival is a production of Donkey Mill Art Center (DMAC), Full Life Hawaii, and Abled Hawai’i Artists (AHA), and is modeled on the highly successful AHA event in Hilo at the Prince Kuhio Shopping Center, now in its ninth year.
AHA, led by Mar Ortaleza, promotes inclusive events for artists with and without disabilities, and helps artists of diverse abilities to explore employment opportunities.
DMAC is the nonprofit arts education center based in Kona coffee’s historic Donkey Mill where people of all ages and abilities gather to ignite their creativity and develop their artistic skills through classes and exhibitions.
Full Life assists in the empowerment of individuals with developmental disabilities by providing free services that include community based supports, personal assistance, and employment services authorized by State of Hawai’i Department of Health.

2015 Day at the Capitol Application -NI – FINAL
Full Life distinguishes itself from other agencies by it’s approach. Full Life embraces each participant as a whole person and together with the person, pursues the path of highest good.
As a person with a disability, I understand what it is to be told what you can and cannot do, with the bar of possibility usually set so low. Full Life allows each individual to explore their fullest potential and discover what he/she can achieve. Participants are not just looked at for who they are. They are looked at for whom they can become.
By being a part of Full Life, we are declaring that we are in agreement with the foundation upon which our country was founded on. The Declaration of Independence states,
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”
Day in and day out, Full Life upholds and lives these truths in the ways they interact and treat each other as staff, board members and participants. With Full Life we get to be a part of something great, something worthy. We get to treat others the way we’d want to be treated, with love, acceptance and respect. Full Life is not just an agency; it’s a way of life and one I’m honored to be a part of.

WHAT IS THE CHARITY WALK?
In 1974 the Hawai’i Lodging& Tourism Association sponsored a charitable “Superwalk”to benefit one major charitable organization. In 1979, the Hawai’i Lodging & Tourism Association members voted to extend the reach of support offered by the Walk’s fund-raising capability.
The Visitor Industry CHARITY WALK is the result of this decision. All Hawaii non-profit charities are eligible to benefit. Walkers are treated to ono food, drink and first-aid at checkpoints along the walk route. All checkpoints are operated and supplied with refreshments and helpers by Hawaii hotels and allied organizations. Entertainment may also be provided at many checkpoints and at the end of the walk.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
Walkers can pay their own $35.00 minimum walk fee, or they can obtain at least $35.00 in pledges before the day of the walk.
