Charlotte Street’s Curatorial Residency Program launched in 2012 with the mission to engage outstanding, emerging curators from around the country with the Kansas City region and its artists. The Program provides support and a public platform for an emerging curator to develop and present original, community-responsive contemporary arts programming. The program also aims to nurture the work and careers of up-and-coming curators, while bringing fresh curatorial approaches and critical perspectives to Kansas City. Teaching partnerships with the Department of Art at the University of Missouri—Kansas City and the Kansas City Art Institute further connect the curator-in-residence with area students.
