SFCA Strategic Plan

4058cea1-bbe3-49ae-b3f4-af94d921485f.png

The 2019-2023 Strategic Plan for the State Foundation on Culture and the Arts has been published! Read more about the process of creating this plan and download a copy on our website: SFCA Strategic Plan 2019-2023


The priorities set forth are reflective of broad community input and the good thinking of the SFCA Commissioners and staff. In adopting these priorities and accompanying strategies, the SFCA intends to strengthen existing programs and services, pursue new initiatives, embrace a culture of transparency and accountability, and set and meet benchmarks that communicate our intentions clearly to our staff, partners, and the broader community.


2018 Teaching Artist Institute Video

"...nobody ever asks the question, well why should we teach math? That doesn't help us learn music better. But they will ask the question, why should we teach music? How does that help us teach math better?" - Daniel A. Kelin II, Framework co-author & developer

Produced by the Honolulu Theatre for Youth with grant funding from the Hawaii Community Foundation, this short film is directed towards the Teaching Artist (TA) and explores ideas of cultivating a common language, modeling visual arts and performing arts, intentional design, and most effective implementation of professional development workshops in an arts integrated setting.


The Teaching Artist Institute is part of the SFCA's Professional Development commitment for Teaching Artists, who are required to participate in annual professional development in order to maintain active status on the Artistic Teaching Partners Roster. This year the SFCA partnered with the Honolulu Theatre for Youth, and provided funding for presenters. On March 23, fifty Teaching Artists came to the Hawaii State Art Museum to learn a framework for designing and conducting high quality professional development experiences in arts integration for classroom teachers. All Teaching Artists on the Artistic Teaching Partners Roster benefited from this day with presenters Dan Kelin, Evan Anderson, Jamie Simpson Steele and Justin Davies.
