Civil Cafe: #BeingMicronesian In Hawaii

  • The Hub at Ward Village 1200 Ala Moana Blvd Honolulu, HI 96814 (map)


As part of the 2019 Honolulu Biennial, Civil Beat is hosting a panel discussion at the Biennial HUB, a Civil Cafe called #BeingMicronesian In Hawaii.

The theme for the 2019 Biennial is Making Wrong / Right / Now and despite Hawaii's reputation as a racial and ethnic melting pot, many Micronesian residents face discrimination, both online and in person. The event will delve into what that looks like and what's being done about it.

We Are Oceania will be providing cultural experiences such as dance, arts and traditional crafts.

Panelists includes: Sha Ongelungel, Dr. Joakim Jojo Peter, Arsima Muller. Moderated by Civil Beat reporter, Anita Hofschneider.

The panel discussion will run from 4:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. Activities will take place before and after panel discussion.

The event is free and open to the public but RSVP is required.
