The Charlotte Street Foundation is ecstatic about the launch of the 2018-2019 Studio Residency year with our annual Slide Slam 2018 event. Slide Slam is an annual event that introduces the new pool of studio residents to each other and to Charlotte Street audiences. The event takes place on Wednesday, September 12, 2018 at 6:30 PM.
The event is moving to a new location this year, hosting the presentation at Charlotte Street’s new space on Broadway Blvd, Capsule, which is located at 1664 Broadway Blvd, Kansas City, MO. Slide Slam 2018 is free and open to the public.
Slide Slam 2018 is a great way for artists to introduce themselves to their peers. The presentation style is influenced by Pecha Kucha and consists of 3-minute slide presentations from each of the 33 incoming studio resident artists. These unique, fast-paced presentations are intended as an introduction to the work, ideas, processes, and personalities of these diverse artists individually. Attendees can learn and expect to see what these studio residents will produce in the upcoming year, and artists can use this presentation as a resource for possible collaborations amongst each other.

Charlotte Street Foundation’s Studio Residency Program provides free studios and rehearsal space in downtown Kansas City, exhibition and mentorships opportunities, and related support as needed to artists of all disciplines. A list of the 30 residents selected can be found below.
