Enough Pie invites you get creative. We are seeking applications from artists, problem solvers, neighborhood associations, doers, movers & shakers, to activate this year’s AWAKENING: NOURISH, a series of events and public installations based on nurturing ourselves & our neighborhoods with creativity and joy. We invite you to create a simple proposal for a project that connects and empowers Charleston’s Upper Peninsula by nourishing it — it can be a mural, a piece of art in a public space, a performance, or a partnership with a small business to create a unique place to gather. There is no limit to your creative vision.
AWAKENING: NOURISH will showcase creative ways to nurture ourselves and our community through food, stories and artistic expression in the Upper Peninsula neighborhoods of Rosemount, Bridgeview, North Central, Eastside and East Central as well as business corridors on Meeting, Morrison and King Streets.
Below is a list of current projects that need artists, collaborators, and volunteers, but please create your own from scratch and submit it by Monday, December 17th. Have questions about your idea? No problem! We have two full days of OPEN OFFICE HOURS (see below), a public meeting after our SOUP & STORYTELLING on Tuesday, November 13 @ 7pm at the Butterfly Book Nook Garden (1020 King), and/or you can call to schedule a 30 minute phone conversation or meeting at our office at 843-972-3253 or email@example.com.
Enough Pie will support NOURISH projects with an artist stipend, materials budget and production assistance. Depending on size and scope of project and location, artist stipends range from $250 – $500. Project budgets (materials, installation, etc.) should not exceed $2,000.
