Don’t take our word for it. Take theirs.

“The location is great. I’ve had multiple clients tell me how much they appreciate not having to drive all the way to Mount Pleasant to meet with me.”

“I am new at the space, but I already feel excited about possible future business connections. I am also more productive when I am at the space, rather than sitting at home, which means I expect higher revenues and  therefore more ability to support other local businesses.”

“I have developed a healthier work / home life balance by having the space. Working from the space has allowed me to make good friends with people who work at Local Works and  next door at 1600 and  also people who are connected to these buildings and  businesses. It has made me feel more integrated and  welcomed in to my life in Charleston which has increased my quality of life!”


The creative industries add more than $3.2B to the Charleston metro economy and  are the 4th largest employment cluster, yet most entrepreneur support groups and coworking spaces are focused on the tech and high-growth sectors. We believe that it is just as important to support the creative industries.

Our Creative in Residence Program aims to engage and  support local creatives by providing space and mentorship opportunities. We offer 6 months of full time residency at Local Works to two local creatives upon completion of an application and review by selection committee. Meet our past and current Creatives below and encourage creatives you know to apply for the Jan-June 2018 residency here.
