ʻO ʻIkuwā i pohā kōʻeleʻele, ʻikuwā ke kai, ʻikuwā ka hekili, ʻikuwā ka manu...
ʻIkuwā is the month when dark storms arise, sea roars, thunder roars, birds roar...
Kūlia e Uli: World Oli Movement (WOM) is an interdisciplinary conference centered on oli (Hawaiʻi chant). Oli is Hawaiʻi chant expression and mode of communication, anchored in the Hawaiʻi soundscape, as a reflection of the honua around and within us. The pursuit of relationships in resonance with our environment can take many forms, which is why WOM honors multiple ways of knowing and multiple intelligences. This movement is for ANYONE interested in learning to connect to place and apply that connection to your personal and professional life. If you are curious, this is for you! Check out the rest of the WOM 2022 website for more info.
The interdisciplinary World Oli Movement (WOM) 2022 will feature a variety of opportunities to dive into the world of oli (chant) and build your knowledge base, skill set, and connections. The program includes co-keynote presentations, workshops, special events and more!
Registration for WOM 2022 is now open! Purchase before September 1 to take advantage of Early Bird deals. There are also opportunities to join Pre-Conference and Special Events to deepen your oli experience.
WOM 2022 will be a hybrid conference, supporting opportunities for in-person attendance in Hilo, Hawaiʻi as well as full online access to our core program and special events, so that you can connect no matter where in the world you join from.
