Artists are seers and through the creative process are our doers, reactionaries, our visionaries, sentinels and guides. Where words fall short, may the Donkey Mill’s impact as a place of convergence express our heartfelt thanks to our many supporters, donors, sponsors, founders, artists, dreamers, activists, the Hawai’i State Legislature, the Mayor’s office, County Council members (Council member Rebecca Villegas, you touched upon the marrow of our programs in sharing your firsthand experience as a student of kapa), OvationTV, Charter Communications, Lili Tokuda (our eldest auction paddle raiser at 99 years old!), to each and all.
Thank you for your courage, care and belief in the power of the arts to inform, inspire and strengthen individual and collective well-being. It’s an honor, a privilege and a world of good to stand for the arts, together.
