Want to MAKE something meaningful for our community? So do we. Enough Pie & Charleston Moves invite you to lead one of the projects outlined below, hop onto an existing project, or create your own installation or public artwork or event for the six annual AWAKENING (a yearly event series centered on a different theme for each occurrence).  The 6th AWAKENING is AWAKENING: MOTION, with protected and connected mobility as the inspiration.

The right for a person to choose the most efficient, safe, and dignified method of travel is critical for a strong, empowered community.  AWAKENING: MOTION will utilize creative ways to showcase equality through motion. Below is a list of projects that need leadership, artistic vision, and volunteer support.  Please join us at one of the scheduled public meetings to ask questions and get involved. From Your Friends @ Enough Pie & CHS Moves!
