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

Hi again to all...here is one more name from my "research"...Randy L. Wilson is president of Community Design Solutions and he is the
person leading the team for the Columbia Studios development project.
his website www.communitydesignsolutions.com
It could be beneficial to contact him during the
planning process as well. Part of the challenge is that the Columbia project is being orchestrated by Developers and professional
planners as well as representatives from the Arts Commission (arts administrators on a state-wide level) our group is
essentially beginning from scratch (which could have some very clear benefits in terms of conceptualization..but which
presents certain organizational challenges..
I hope that this is of some use.
