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

Arts agency to hold forum tonight to get community ideas

The S.C. Arts Commission is holding seven public forums around the state, including one tonight in North Charleston, to give state residents a chance to offer input on the agency's 2011-2020 Long-Range Plan. The forums are part of "the 2010 Canvas of the People" (playing off the canvas artists use for painting and the verb "canvass," meaning "to survey").

Tonight's forum will be held from 6:45 p.m. to 8 p.m. at North Charleston City Hall, 2500 City Hall Lane. The program is free and open to anyone who's interested. Those who can't attend but would like to comment on the plan or offer suggestions can fill out an online survey.
