HAWAII is exclusive and rough, a workspace during the day, at night occasionally a salon that presents exhibitions, art clubs, talks, readings, concerts, performances and hosts private dinners.

HAWAII do mash-ups, initiating cross-disciplinary collaborations between Danish and international artists, writers, graphic designers and filmmakers.
