Words Over Weapons

  • Waikiki Beachcomber by Outrigger 2300 Kalakaua Avenue Honolulu, HI, 96815 United States (map)

A celebration of communication featuring poetry and hip hop in a iconic Waikiki setting.

This fusion event is not only celebrating communication but also this year's Na Hoku Hanohano award winner for best Hip Hop album of the year, Punahele Kūkailimoku Kanikapila. Together we are combining our talents as a collective to utilize art as advocacy, poetry as protest and community as one voice.

As humans we are the only species that can talk and using this ability is what differentiates us. Choosing words over weapons is what believe.

Featuring YPDA Social Justice Action Committee Chair, 2017 & 2018 National Poetry Slam Representative for Hawaii Slam, 2018 Woman of the World Poetry Slam Representative for Hawaii Slam and co-founder of HI Poets Society, Destiny Sharion as M.C.
