This Is Noteworthy is a 501(c)(3) organization started in 2011 in Charleston, SC (originally called The Music Initiative) as a digital magazine and creator of video content, with the goal to promote independent musicians, venues, and organizations using music or film to elevate their communities.
The initial volunteer staff was 40 young professionals and college students from all over the United States, interested in furthering their skills and talents with real world experience in writing, designing, storyboarding, filming, and producing in a way that celebrated the artistic process.
Over the past decade, This Is Noteworthy added programs requested by the community, including:
In 2014, This Is Noteworthy started CHARM (Charleston Health Alliance for Regional Musicians) to subsidize healthcare and health insurance premiums for touring musicians and people in the music industry.
This Is Noteworthy programming has cumulatively created 720 jobs, featured 4540 musicians, and worked with 210 college students and 70 high school students.
As we celebrate the first decade of This Is Noteworthy, we aim to expand its life-affirming programs and grow its impact significantly over the next 3 years, ensuring the legacy of elevating communities through the arts for decades to come.
2022 welcomes program availability to Mississippi, Texas, South Carolina, and Tennessee.

We transform communities into entrepreneur centers and dream zones for people in the Arts, Entertainment and Hospitality industries by curating interactive experiences, spaces and programming. We cultivate unexpected talent. We look for people who are doing good work in communities who need to be elevated, and find a way to make things happen. We care for the people who entertain, create, host, serve and inspire.
We are a federally registered 501(c)3 nonprofit corporation founded in Charleston, SC in 2011. Our first physical community & cultural arts opened in the fall of 2022 in Water Valley, Mississippi. We operate a small media hub out of Nashville, Tennessee. We serve people and conduct programs in Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, New York, North Carolina, South Carolina, Texas, and Tennessee.
If you have a skill you think would help us, or just feel like this is a place you want to be, we will discover together what our path will be.
We need people who love the industries who fuel our creative souls, and who believe in keeping them healthy. If this is you, reach out!
Got an idea or have a contact you think could help us, send them our way, or please make an introduction. We welcome the help.
This may sound shocking, but for some of our recipients, as little as $10 could help them with a month's worth of payments. Every bit helps.
See if your employer would match your donation, or talk to a company and see if they might join in some interesting way.
Make a recurring yearly commitment to support our initiatives. This journey is a marathon, not a sprint.
