outreach-images-3bThe East-West Center is an education and research organization established by the U.S. Congress in 1960 to strengthen relations and understanding among the peoples and nations of Asia, the Pacific, and the United States. The EWC Arts Program offers exhibitions, performances, and artists’ lecture-demonstrations to the public, and invites O‘ahu teachers to bring school groups to its educational outreach programs especially designed for students. Through the visual and performing arts, young audiences are better able to appreciate the peoples and cultures of the Asia-Pacific region.

All exhibitions and selected performance-demonstrations are FREE to K-12 schools. EWC is able to assist with bus transportation, please inquire for details. EWC Arts educational outreach programs connect easily to Hawai‘i school standards.

The content and resources presented as part of East-West Center educational outreach programs can be incorporated into classroom curriculum in order to connect to both HCPS Benchmarks and CCSS Standards. Information is presented by professionals, including guided gallery tours by our center curator and lecture demonstrations by musicians and dancers. Gallery tours include supplementary written material to explain the content and context of the exhibition.

The EWC Gallery is located at 1601 East-West Rd. (corner of Dole Street and East-West Rd.), adjacent to the UH Mānoa campus; Imin Center-Jefferson Hall is located at 1777 East-West Road, opposite the UH Kennedy Theater.
