Thank you for attending the Creative Town Hall hosted by the Charleston Arts Coalition, in partnership with the Tate Center for Entrepreneurship at the College of Charleston. We hope you found inspiration, made new connections and gathered ideas.
If you were unable to attend, the survey results announced at the Town Hall are available on our website. There was wonderful response to the survey and so many relevant ideas, concerns, and needs were brought to light as a result.
Please take a few moments to look through the survey results and think about what and how they apply to you and how you can get involved in making the dreams and goals of the Charleston arts community a reality.
