MISSON FOR TOMORROW.
We are dedicated to the creation of vibrant public spaces that serve the local communities.
Our mission is to foster connection within communities by forming strategic partnerships with local government bodies, land owners, businesses, residents and other community stakeholders to activate existing underutilized public space and find creative ways to dedicate and convert existing private space for public use. Kīpuka Hawaiʻi strives to create safe, welcoming and vibrant urban oases or “Kīpuka” that benefit communities by providing social and cultural programming in these newly activated public spaces that is representative of the surrounding community’s rich past, present needs and future vision.
