For seven years now, Enough Pie has hosted a community initiative/festival/arts collaboration, 'Awakening.' This year, Enough Pie executive director Cathryn Zommer says that the organization is expanding their Awakening offerings (which usually take place over the course of a month), with a full year of programming and public art works that center around the theme of 'Nourish.'
Enough Pie is currently looking for collaborators
for Nourish, asking for applications from artists, "problem solvers," neighborhood associations, doers, "movers and shakers." As always Awakening: Nourish will feature a series of events and public installations; this year those events and installations will be "based on nurturing ourselves and our neighborhoods with creativity and joy."
Enough Pie is looking for simple proposals for projects that connect and empower Charleston's upper peninsula, noting that there is "no limit to your creative vision." Suggested locations for these projects include the Food Lion parking lot on King Street, the backyard park of the Joseph Floyd Manor, and Martha Lou's side yard.
Head to a public meeting on Tues. Nov. 13 at 1020 King St. to learn more about Nourish and be sure to turn in your proposal by noon on Mon. Dec. 17. If you have any additional questions, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org.
After the project proposals are accepted, they will begin to be implemented in the community through June 2019. Until then, though, there are current community events and projects that locals can take part in. Every Tuesday from 5:30-7 p.m. join the Stone Stoup Collective
when they head to the Butterfly Book Nook (a community garden located at 1020 King St.) for soup and storytelling.
Outdoor community space, The Butterfly Book Nook, opens on Upper King Street this weekend
Celebrate the new green space
Coordinated by Enough Pie, First African, the John L. Dart Library, Redux, Artist & Craftsman, Historic Charleston Foundation, REMARK Landscape, and North Central neighbors, the Butterfly Book Nook is located just across from the Food Lion on Upper King.
Transformation Table, starting in January, 2019, is an opportunity for a diverse group of people to eat food from another culture in a stranger's home in the Upper Peninsula.
