Craft Night 2012 was held on November 18th & 25th in Green Room Hale Kuahine and in the 9th floor lounge of Hale Manoa. We facilitated students and community who wants to share their talents to those who wants to learn about any kind of crafting. This is a great opportunity to learn from or share a craft with others in our extremely talented EWCPA ‘Ohana! Paint, canvases, brushes, felt, glue, scissors, and other craft supplies were provided.
Mahalo to our talented artists and everyone who came to Craft Night and helped EWC Craft Fair! 🙂
The highly anticipated, annual International Potluck unifies East West Center participants over a theme that is savored by all: exquisite traditional cuisine. At this year’s “Sharing Is Caring” event, fifteen cultural teams helped attendees to experience the uniqueness of their cultures on Sunday, November 14, 2010 by preparing multiple courses for hundreds of people awaiting the richness of flavors. National flags, edible decorations, and cultural information of each team instilled curiosity and excitement in everyone. EWCPA Board Members and MCs of the afternoon, Erenst Anip, Brian Kastl, and Hannah Kook welcomed attendees to the event and introduced the cultural teams. Eating commenced, and indeed, every dish was as delectable as imagined. The greatest challenge of the afternoon was leaving enough room to try them all. Before long, attendees could not contain their energy any further and group dancing broke out in the Friendship Circle. Stories were shared and great values of the many cultures of the Asia-Pacific region were learned. As always, the International Potluck was memorable – and mouthwatering!
