Calling all artists! Submit a proposal for AWAKENING, a one-time art installation and performance event designed to breathe new life into 1600 Meeting, an 86-year-old vacant structure on upper Meeting Street in Charleston.
The rooms and hallways of 1600 Meeting will be open for creative re-interpretation during the three-day window between cleanup and building renovation. The space will belong to all artists: dancers, painters, actors, sculptors, musicians, filmmakers, photographers and everything in between. Artists of any age, background, approach and medium are welcome, as are teams or individuals and projects of any size or shape.There are no rules or required dimensions.
Hosted by Enough Pie, Awakening will be a temporary and site-specific event, never to take place in 1600 Meeting again. It is truly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity!
Artist proposals are due May 6. Selected participants will be notified of their acceptance May 20. Awakening is scheduled for early June, but the final event timeline is dependent on the 1600 Meeting renovation schedule. The final event date will be announced as soon as possible.
For submission details and photos of the interior of 1600 Meeting, visit enoughpie.org/awakening or download the call for artist proposals.

About 1600 Meeting
Built in 1926, 1600 Meeting is located in Charleston’s burgeoning creative corridor on upper Meeting Street. Though vacant in recent years, the space was once home to an Exxon office, antique shop and technical college. Now 1600 Meeting will transform into a creative hub, being reborn and repurposed to house nonprofits, artists, designers and creative small businesses.
