I need my space…

As the art scene in coastal SC is exploding, a need for performance space to accommodate this boom is an issue, as some communities don’t have enough affordable space for all arts groups to host events. But positive things are happening.  In September 2011, Pure Theatre took over the Charleston Ballet Theatre’s space on King Street, and has since continued to rack in great reviews in its 9th season.  Colleton County Arts Council last year settled into their newly rented space from SC Artisans Center in downtown Walterboro, and continues to be a great resource for children and adults to experience the arts in a variety of ways. In Beaufort, ARTworks and USC-B’s Performing Arts Center have great space and popular support.  And Hampton County Arts Council’s Palmetto Theatre is more impressive with every visit.  The Lowcountry is taking strides to tackle this issue and support its ever-growing art scene, but some groups still have to beg and borrow for space.
