Our Mission

The Honolulu Biennial Foundation (HBF) supports the local arts infrastructure with a global outreach by presenting a new arts festival, the Honolulu Biennial. The launch of Honolulu Biennial marks Hawaii’s first entry into the international biennial circuit. Honolulu Biennial will focus on art from the Pacific, the Asian continent and the Americas.

Throughout the year, HBF serves the local community by presenting educational outreach programs, with an emphasis on programming for Hawaii’s youth as well as exhibitions and professional development opportunities for the local arts community.
