The Maui Arts & Cultural Center’s Heritage Film Festival will present Project Kuleana on Saturday, Sept. 5 at 7:30 p.m. in the Castle Theater.

Project Kuleana is a movement to utilize music as a vehicle for community education and developing layers of understanding to strengthen our lāhui (nation) Hawai‘i.

The project was created by three native Hawaiian musicians who share the perspective that kuleana is what makes music Hawaiian.
