Camden Cultural District

The Downtown Camden Cultural District Steering Committee will holds its first meeting of 2024 on Monday, April 22 from 5:30 to 7:00 pm at the Arts Center of Kershaw County, in the Douglas Reed House, 810 Lyttleton Street.

Residents and business owners that are interested in helping shape the immediate and long term future of the Cultural District are invited to attend the meeting and consider joining the steering committee. The steering committee helps advise decisions regarding policies and projects within the Cultural District.

Camden’s cultural district is one of nine in South Carolina, as designated by the South Carolina Arts Commission in October 2020. Cultural districts are geographic areas of S.C. cities or towns that have a concentration of artistic assets, cultural facilities, creative businesses, and placemaking activities. They contribute creative economic vitality to their locality and are tourism hotspots for locals and non-locals alike. They are accessible areas that are easily identifiable to visitors and residents; and they often serve as a center of cultural, artistic, and economic activity. They may have festivals, galleries, live performance venues, theaters, artist studios, museums, arts centers, arts schools, cultural infrastructure, buskers or outdoor music series, and public artworks. Cultural districts may also contain businesses or locations like restaurants, banks, or parks whose primary purpose is not creative, but that regularly make their spaces available to artists or create opportunities for the public to encounter the arts.
