The program was established to implement an integrated visual arts in education program, while providing commissioned works of art in public schools. A $100,000 budget has been set per project. The deadline to submit applications is April 25. The HSFCA urges visual artists to register with CaFÉ (callforentry.org), a website developed by the Western States Arts Federation (WESTAF) to facilitate calls for artists and artwork. The CaFÉ registration is free, secure, and offers access to visual arts opportunities nationwide. The title of the call on CaFÉ is: 2017 APP HAWAII: Commissioned Works of Art for the Department of Education. Film screenings ‘This Changes Everything’ to be shown North Kohala Public Library will present the environmental documentary film “This Changes Everything” at 6 p.m. on Monday. This special film showing is possible through the cooperation of the Sierra Club. Directed by Avi Lewis, and inspired by Naomi Klein’s international nonfiction bestseller, “This Changes Everything” presents seven powerful portraits of communities on the front lines, from Montana’s Powder River Basin to the Alberta Tar Sands, from the coast of South India to Beijing and beyond. Interwoven with these stories of struggle is Klein’s narration, connecting the carbon in the air with the economic system that put it there. Throughout the film, Klein builds to her most controversial and exciting idea: “that we can seize the existential crisis of climate change to transform our failed economic system into something radically better.” Filmed over 211 shoot days in nine countries and five continents over four years, “This Changes Everything” is an epic attempt to re-imagine the vast challenge of climate change.
