What is this?
This blog will be a resource for recording thoughts, ideas, schemes, and anything else that develops on the way to forming a unified voice and center for the Charleston arts community. Everything presented here is subject to change.
How does this work?
There will be a designated set of authors who will be responsible for posting topics for discussion, to begin with anyone may comment on a discussion topic or suggest a new post but only the authors may post new topics (this is mostly to avoid spamming and over posting). In time this can develop into an online wiki or discussion board style web page of information and ideas, but at the moment a blog is the most direct, immediate and open way to track the development of the ideas being developed. if you have a suggestion or want to post please send email to

Space the final frontier?
While last nights panel discussion began by discussing the rapid displacement of artists, musicians, and other creative practitioners from the Charleston peninsula, a positivity and energy emerged from the standing room only crowd. It is a testament to the vitality of the arts in Charleston that on a Thursday night, a crowd of enthusiastic, creative people came together to dialog. Through the course of the dialog one thread re-emerged continuously, what if we all worked together? In the time leading up to the next panel discussion/organizational meeting this blog will help flesh out ideas about what a unified voice for the arts might look like.
