Announcing the First Community Project Grant Recipients
Enough Pie is pleased to announce the first recipients of the Community Project Grants program! The following three projects have received grants for implementation in April and May. Click on the project to learn more:
Chicora Place Community Garden Vista-gram: Residents and volunteers will create planters using found materials and also take part in a community photography project to document the process. The photographs will be mounted as a collage in the garden’s gazebo, serving as an educational tool to promote the garden’s features and events.
Eastside Poetry Box & Slam: Community members are invited to submit original poems through a drop-box at the John L. Dart library to be considered for a poetry slam event at the library in May. Winners will also have their work published on the Lowcountry Initiative for the Literary Arts website.
Hop, Skip and a Jump: Two mosaic hopscotch boards will be built for the upper peninsula, transforming public spaces into artistic play-spaces. The boards will be created by a local artist as well as community volunteers in a series of events this spring, starting with Enough Pie’s March 22nd Pop-up in the Park at Romney Street Mini Park.
We will be highlighting each project over the next two weeks, so keep an eye on our blog to learn more. If you’re feeling inspired by these projects and want to submit you own Letter of Intent, please visit www.enoughpie.org/grants for more information.
