CAHA, a government of Guam agency that promotes the arts in the lives of the residents of Guam is holding an annual event for residents to experience, appreciate, express, and learn art in many different forms.

In an interview with PNC, Sandra Flores, CAHA’s Executive Director, Executive Director, and Mike Mafnas– Program Coordinator explained what the “Arts in Action” event will entail.

Flores said, “We open the doors at 4 and we’re going to have workshops. And we’ll have things from traditional art and we’ll have things from modern arts like photography that people can participate in. And then at 6, the doors will open for the reception. We just have such an amazing array of performance art that you’re not going to see anywhere else from on the stage– symphonies, spoken word, things like that.”

Mafnas added, “During the event, we will have a workshop session. The demonstration at 4:00 will feature weavers, culinary artists, dancers, painters, and all kinds of artists that’ll be demonstrating their talents during the workshops.”

Furthermore, Mafnas gives PNC a sneak peek about the performers at “Arts in Action.” saying, “So, Guam Symphony will be there, with at least 15 members of their band and they will be tagged along with Miss Saigon–coming out of their theater production who is a grantee of ours.”

In addition to performances and demonstrations, a cocktail reception will follow at 6opnm along with a silent auction.

The “Arts in Action” event will be held at the Hilton Resort and Spa on October 22, 2022. Tickets are $75 per person.

Proceeds from “Arts in Action” will go to Guam delegates at Festpac which will be held in Hawaii.
