"Mele Murals promotes youth development, education, cultural preservation, and community building through the visual arts."
Mele Murals is the head program of the Estria Foundation. Our program focuses on Hawaiian lyrics of chant and song (mele) that explores mo’olelo ‘aina (stories of place) to connect youth and schools with their cultural and historical heritage. We serve the youth of Hawai‘i to enhance student creative and critical thinking skills through the mural arts process. Weʻve served over 30 public schools in Hawai‘iʻs Department of Education since 2013.
