Enough Pie, a new grassroots organization, is ready to share some pie with everyone. Unfortunately for those with a sweet tooth, the pie they speak of is more figurative than literal. This first event is aimed at introducing Charlestonians to Enough Pie’s mission, which is to create a livable, diverse arts and design district in the NoMo area. “Our approach is bottom up to organize, catalyze, and support creative placemaking in the upper peninsula community,” says Enough Pie founder Kate Nevin. After an overview of the organization’s plans, attendees can stay for a lecture by urban planner Mike Lydon, who will discuss “tactical urbanism,” or small-scale changes — like adding murals along one block or bike lanes in a neighborhood — that together create long-term improvements in a city. There will also be a chance for guests and community members to ask questions and offer comments on Enough Pie’s upcoming projects. “Overall we want this event to be a place where general conversations will occur to encourage ideas about increasing a sense of community,” Nevin adds.
