Charlotte Street’sStudio Residencyprogram provides visual artists, writers, and generative performing artists with a rich creative environment that promotes community-building, creative production, artistic experimentation, learning, and cross-disciplinary work. Approximately 30 artists each year receive free studio space (accessible 24/7), rehearsal space, professional development, exhibition and performance opportunities, and mentorships. Charlotte Street’s annual Open Studios event makes Resident art more accessible to a broad public audience and encourages exchange and collaboration among the Studio Residents. Artists receive Studio Residency for two-year terms, on a rotating basis, with a new cohort of approximately 15 residents joining each June.


Charlotte Street centers Kansas City’s most forward-thinking visual artists, writers, and performers—acting as the primary incubator, provocateur, and connector for the region’s contemporary arts community, and its leading advocate on the national stage. Since 1997, Charlotte Street has distributed over $2 million in awards and grants to artists and their innovative projects, and connected individual artists to each other and to the greater Kansas City community.
