THE CHARLESTON RHIZOME COLLECTIVE is an Art-in/with community group, where education, art and activism intersect. By design, it is grassroots, inter-racial and inter-generational. Through the arts, they aim to amplify the voices of neighborhoods absent from public and private plans: social, cultural and economic. Parts of the "conNECKted" project are supported by the City of Charleston Office of Cultural Affairs, Alternate ROOTS (Partners in Action Program and Artistic Assistance), We Shall Overcome Fund, Rajni Shah Productions (One Final Act), the US Department of Arts & Culture (a non-profit organization not a government agency), the N.E.W. Fund from The Coastal Community Foundation, and ArtSpot Productions.
