PICA-WA envisions a thriving Pasifika Arts community that cultivates belonging and celebrates the full spectrum of our Pasifika Arts practices. Our goal is to provide a wide range of opportunities, connections, and resources to help cultivate a cultural home for our Pasifika communities to curate community engagement, celebrate Pasifika identity, and find cultural belonging.
We are focused on creating monthly programs that reintroduce Indigenous art forms of Oceania. This includes but is not limited to: the performance arts, cultural dance arts, weaving and carving.
The INS[PI]RED Residency’s goal is to provide Pasifika artists with time, space, and resources to be able to lean into their artistic practice in an effort to create or continue working on works of their choice. You can read more about our Artist Residency here.
