Enough Pie, the fledgling nonprofit spurring the growth of "creative clusters" and advocating inclusive community development projects on the upper peninsula of Charleston, is organizing a series of three "Pop-ups in the Park" next month.
The Saturday pop-ups are scheduled for 1-2:30 p.m. March 8, 15 and 22 at the Romney Street Mini Park, 695 Meeting St.
They will feature performing and visual art and activities, including African drumming and dance, storytelling, screenprinting, do-it-yourself collage- and print-making, student talent shows and more.
The events are free, family-friendly and open to the public. In case of rain, the pop-ups will move to nearby Meeting Street Academy, 642 Meeting St.
The events, meant to foster a sense of community and demonstrate the commercial and creative potential of the upper peninsula, receive support from local artists and arts organizations, nonprofits and educators.
Enough Pie promotes "creative placemaking" and smart growth through programming, grant disbursements and collaboration. Last year, the group hosted a community brainstorming session that generated its "Muster Plan," and it organized a temporary art installation at 1600 Meeting St. before the building was renovated and occupied by artists and entrepreneurs.
