conNECKtedTOO is transitioning. For the purpose of supporting TINY BUSINESS as an essential form of commerce in Charleston, the Collective is morphing from the hard media of sculpture, poster, performance and diagram making, to the virtuality of a Mobile App to be found at TINYisPOWERFUL.com. conNECKtedTOO is dedicated to very small enterprises. They are powerful models of creativity, citizenship, courage and sustainability.
To accomplish such a metamorphosis, we found it necessary to gather together all the productions from the diverse studios of its members, lots of its research and findings, documentation of all its live dialogues and collaborations with participating Charleston Tiny Businesses and more … at a place on Reynolds Avenue in North Charleston. We have two months there to transform a very raw warehouse, in a very transitional area, into what we conceptualize as a PUBLIC ART SPACE.
Read these three words as a phrase (public art space), or as a list (public – art – space) or a stack public
space, and they will take wildly different dimensions and meanings. conNECKtedTOO is injecting them all into its “Place Making” exercise. “Place Making,” a rather soft cultural activity, which conNECKtedTOO took on, two years ago in January 2017, to prove the power of art and the spirit of the arts to assemble, make whole and generate commonality among people, where they live.
