Pow Wow offer us a week to enjoy art by any of its presentations. All of this will happen next week in the neighborhood of Kaka’ako in Hawaii.

The meaning of Pow!, is the impact of art has on a person; Wow!, the reaction art provokes in the viewer; this is how festival members are defined. It has been established as one of the most important festivals internationally by the number of participating artists, the magnitude of their events and the diversity of activities.

This festival is a gathering that honors culture and seeks to create links between the participants and the people who visit the place. From February 11th to the 18th the edition of 2017 will be made, which will include electronic musicians such as Steve Aoki and Autoerotique. In addition, the documentary Saving Banksy will be screened on one of the most representative figures of street art.

In times of change and uncertainty, only the sense of community can save us from a nervous breakdown. Art is the perfect excuse for combining tastes, customs and expressions.
