Studio Residency Program

Studio Residency Program:

Charlotte Street’s Studio Residency Program, located in downtown Kansas City, MO, advances the organization’s mission of challenging, nurturing and empowering artists of exceptional vision by providing free studio space, rehearsal space, and related support that enables exceptional artists of all disciplines to advance their art practices and artistic careers.  Charlotte Street Foundation’s Studio Residency Program has supported the development of many hundreds of artists.

Visual artists, writers, and performing artists (composers/musicians, choreographers/dancers, theatre artists) are eligible for the year-long residencies, with terms beginning each September.

The studios are located on a previously vacant floor of an office building in downtown Kansas City. They include dedicated spaces for visual artists and writers, and access to shared rehearsal spaces–including a dance stage with Marley floor–for performing artists, all with 24-hour access.

The Studio Residency Program is currently housed in the following facility:

  • the 6th floor of Town Pavilion at 1100 Walnut

The program aims to support creative production, artistic experimentation and collaboration, professional development, and close connection and exchange among the multi-disciplinary community of participating artists.  Components include annual open studios, exhibition and performance opportunities at Charlotte Street’s nearby Paragraph gallery & Project Space, monthly all-resident group meetings with artist presentations, studio visits, and mentorships.

Applications for the Studio Residency Program are accepted each spring. Visit Opportunities for upcoming application deadlines and eligibility information.
