Awakening: Motion Call for Volunteers, Neighbors, Builders, Everyone!

Want to MAKE something meaningful for our community? So Do We.

Awakening: Motion will take place from May 1 to June 1, 2018 in Charleston’s Upper Peninsula.

Enough Pie & Charleston Moves invite you to get involved with one of the projects outlined below, hop onto an existing project 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 is a series of community artwork and public projects in Charleston’s Upper Peninsula that aims to dignify mobility through creative solutions so that everyone feels safe & welcome on our streets.

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!

Charleston Moves & Enough Pie will be involved in each project, however, projects are being divided and conquered based on each organization’s strengths.  Please contact either savannah@charlestonmoves.org OR bennett@enoughpie.org for more information on specific projects.
