Why support HI Arts Lab? Performing Arts in the United States is grossly underfunded by local and federal governments. We need help from supporters like you to keep hiring local Hawaii-based talent and to continue demonstrating our ability to bring you unique and interesting shows that you can't see anywhere else. Each of our shows is a risk from conception to opening night and your support helps us continue providing experiential moments to the audiences of Hawai'i. HI Arts Lab strives to be imaginative and responsible but our ticket prices are kept low so that we can reach more of Hawai'i's audiences. Every dollar given to support HI Arts Lab will help us fulfill our mission to bring more innovative shows to the stage, keep the performing arts relevant and exciting, and to bring our education initiatives to the keiki of Hawai'i. 

Join our ragtag team of supporters and arts lovers and help us put together the best experiences that we possibly can. 

Mahalo nui loa for your support!
