TALK STORY #18: Caroline Kahoʻiwai Belsom & Jocelyn Romero Demirbag

June 27, 2022

In May 2022, Jocelyn Romero Demirbag, Ed.D., Director of Development, Maui Nui at The University of Hawaii Foundation, completed a storytelling training alongside 12 extraordinary individuals led by SMALL TOWN * BIG ART artist Leilehua Yuen. Our team paired each participant with an intergenerational partner to engage in a 40-minute, audio-recorded "Talk Story" session, with the goal of capturing an authentic moment of connection. Here, Jocelyn speaks with Caroline Kahoʻiwai Belsom at Hale Hōʻikeʻike at the Bailey House / Maui Historical Society. This recording will become part of a collection from which artists will base a proposed work of public art through the upcoming SMALL TOWN * BIG ART 2022 RFP (request for proposals). Learn more at
