Charlotte Street’s Studio Residency Program Open Studios Weekend is the program’s largest annual event, hosting more than 700 visitors over two days. Through this unique event, the public is invited into the studios of Charlotte Street’s resident artists for two days of intimate opportunities to interact with the artists in their working environments.

Open Studios Weekend 2016 will spotlight the work of more two dozen artists, including 15 visual artists, 6 performing artists and ensembles, and 3 writers. All have been awarded free studio space and related support through Charlotte Street Studio Residency Program for the period September 2015-August 2016. Special offerings include an array of original live music and dance, readings of new fiction and non-fiction by writers-in-residence, and a culminating musical performance. Charlotte Street’s nearby Paragraph Gallery and Project Space feature exhibitions organized by the 2015-16 Studio Residents.
