The Charleston Regional Alliance for the Arts is dedicated to the shared realization of a dynamic and thriving arts community by serving arts organizations in the region of Charleston, SC with resources and best business practices.
Acting as a catalyst and facilitator for Charleston, Berkeley, and Dorchester counties, the Charleston Regional Alliance for the Arts envisions an engaged community that is fully expressive, creative and inspired by the arts. The Alliance imagines: the building of bridges within the arts community and between arts organizations and the community as a whole; a common language among diverse constituents; enhanced economic impact of the arts; all art forms made accessible to the community; and, our artisans, performers and organizations being highly recognized, valued and respected.
"Excellence – the unending, unrelenting, exhausting search for it – is the universal message of the arts. Doing it better than ever before, the perfect stroke and color of the artist’s brush, the newfound clarity of the symphony’s strings, the most gracious dancer’s soaring leap, the opera’s emotional crescendo… great art is the never-ending search for excellence." -- Mayor Joseph P. Riley, Jr.
