South Carolina Artists in Action
SCAiA is a new program serving Black #SCartists.
It will work to provide the tools necessary to create long-term, sustainable careers.
We envision a South Carolina where Black artists have essential support for sustainable careers.
The mission of SCAiA is to identify and implement best practices enabling Black artist and Black artist institutions to advance, support, and sustain equitable, inclusive working relationships.
We seek transparency from institutions for the improvement of artistic partnerships.
We value boldness in action and solutions.
We are committed to an open exchange of ideas.
We support kindness and grace in our professional working relationships.
We celebrate talent, vision, and artistic quality.
We believe in the humanity and dignity of artists.

The leadership team, led by SCAC Artist Development Director Ce Scott-Fitts, is working to create programs and resources that support Black artists throughout the state.
To best serve Black artists in this state, we completed an anonymous survey of Black artists’ experiences in late 2021. This survey will help the SCAiA leadership team best serve and support the Black artist community.
Results are expected be published here by late winter 2022. The SCAC and SCAiA look forward to sharing those with you.
