Charleston’s only creative placemaking non-profit, Enough Pie, will ignite AWAKENING 8: WEAVE THE PEOPLE Park Project, rejuvenating a bleak, underutilized park under the popular I-26 underpass off of Upper King Street in Spring 2020.  The project will bring this underpass park to life. This area is the gateway to Charleston (just off 26 as drivers come into downtown) and is currently serviced by the City of Charleston, but not engaged with by the community due to previous drainage issues and aging infrastructure.

Enough Pie, along with 30+ artists and 200+ community members, will bring to life 40+ columns beneath the underpass with vibrant art based on the theme WEAVE THE PEOPLE. Columns will be adopted and painted by neighbors, neighborhood groups, non-profits, churches, and other stakeholders in the area around the park.  In partnership with the Parks Department, the space will receive a new basketball court with vibrant artwork and brand new children’s equipment. A living wall created out of bamboo will be planted to increase breathable oxygen in the park and assist with shade and sound remediation. Moveable tables and chairs, and other recreation and gathering elements will be incorporated, budget permitting. Partners include the City of Charleston, Keep Charleston Beautiful, North Central Neighborhood Association, and many more.
