The Charlotte Street Foundation accepts programming submissions on a rolling basis. Applicants can be artists (of any discipline), curators, or cultural producers wishing to partner with Charlotte Street to produce programming on or off site of Charlotte Street’s exhibition spaces.
Proposals may be for contemporary arts projects including, but not limited to, visual art exhibitions, installations, original live performances (dance, theater, music, performance art, spoken word, etc.), video screenings, literary readings/events, public programs, and collaborative projects.
Ideal Programming at Charlotte Street:
• Presents leading-edge contemporary work of all disciplines, including work that is unconventional, experimental, site-specific, and multi-disciplinary
• Advances Charlotte Street’s mission of challenging, nurturing and empowering artists of exceptional vision & compelling originality
• Contributes diversity to Kansas City’s arts ecology, including through artists involved, ideas explored, approaches employed, and communities and audiences engaged
Artists and arts organizers of all disciplines (visual and performing arts) 21 and older and not currently enrolled in a degree-seeking academic program are eligible to apply. Curators and/or organizers from outside of the Kansas City area are encouraged to apply, however should (as part of the proposal) describe how their project engages specifically with Kansas City artists or community in a compelling way. (Examples would be an exchange proposal, curating a mix of artists including some artists from the Kansas City community, a social practice project that engages directly with specific Kansas City communities, etc.)
