COMMUNITY INFORMATION GATHERINGS // CALL FOR COLLABORATORS!
Thursday, September 21th at 5pm - REDUX
Friday, September 22nd at 10am - JOHN L. DART LIBRARY

Poetry is for everyone. EP strongly supports poetry in public spaces to excite us, inspire us, gather us, and move us into action in our neighborhoods. Let poetry spark up conversations about justice, freedom, community, and hope. Let’s use free verse to do it.

Join us to celebrate Charleston’s first poetry festival, Free Verse, with SPEAK UP, putting poems from children, poets, and residents in public spaces throughout the Upper Peninsula. From walls, sidewalks, bus stops, light poles and more, temporary poetry will prevail in October.

Got a creative idea? We want to hear it! Here are some of the poems that will be featured across the public landscape. Do you want to work with one of them?! Let us know!

An example of community poetry in action will be poetry gathering at the Joseph Floyd Manor, a residence for elders on King & Mt Pleasant Street. In late September, local poet Matt Foley will lead a workshop to create poetry about HOME and PLACE. The next class, key text will be put into artwork that will hang on the curated art wall in the main lobby of this public residence. This is just ONE idea. What’s yours?

We want this poetry in public spaces to thrive -- please join an existing creative team, or present an idea yourself. Email info@enoughpie.org by September 25.

All hands on deck! Installation of poetry throughout 800+ acres will begin on Monday, October 9.

Dojo Nowhere

Dojo Nowhere

Sep 27, 7:00pm - Sep 27, 9:00pm

St. Julian Devine Center
1 Cooper St
Charleston, SC  29403 Map

Dojo Nowhere is an experimental music series, focusing on artists, composers, educators, and performers of different backgrounds and skill sets. We invite you to participate in the exchange of ideas and creative thought.

This is the third installment of the on-going and evolving project. The first existing in the form of an improvisers collective which met on Sundays in an art cafe (King Dusko, 2014) . The second being an instrument building and sound collage workshop using recycled materials (CCPL / DIY Fest, 2015).

The inspiration comes from the idea that a creative space can be anywhere (mobile or stationary) and makes for an interesting experiment when those places change over time.
