The Charlotte Street Foundation is excited to start the 2019-2020 Studio Residency year with a bang! The annual Slide Slam event introduces the new pool of studio residents to each other and to Charlotte Street audiences in a fun and condensed two-hour presentation! The event takes place on Wednesday, September 11, 2019 at 6:30 PM. The event is free and open the public of all ages! Free drinks will be provided. Get ready to learn about Kansas City’s up-and-coming artists through fun presentation slides!

The event is located at the Capsule performance space on Broadway Blvd. Capsule, which is located at 1664 Broadway Blvd, Kansas City, MO, is located next to Charlotte Street’s 2018 StartUp Residents Stray Cat Film Center! Parking can be located in the gravel parking lot behind Capsule off of 17th Street to the east side of Broadway Blvd. Street parking can also be found on Washing Street, Broadway Blvd and 17th Street!

Slide Slam 2019 is a great way for artists to introduce themselves to their peers and to supporters of Kansas City’s arts community. The presentation style, influenced by Pecha Kucha, consists of 3-minute slide presentations from each of the 32 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.
