Charlotte Street Foundation is seeking applications from visual artists, performing artists, and writers interested in being considered for its Studio Residency Program. Applications are due Monday, May 15, 2017 for year-long studio residency terms, which run September 2017 through September 2018. Applications will be accepted EXCLUSIVELY through www.callforentry.org. All applicants must create a Call For Entry (CAFE) username/password account in order to use the online application. The application process is competitive through an independent jury process and based solely on the merit of the artist work samples and written statements. Charlotte Street Foundation administrates the jury panel each term.
Entering its fourteenth year, the Studio Residency Program provides free studio and rehearsal spaces to exceptional young, emerging, and/or already accomplished artists in need of workspace in which to create and to develop their creative processes, professional practices, and peer networks. Through the program’s offerings—which include studio space, required monthly meetings, presentations, studio visits, mentorships, public programs, exhibitions, and access to a multidisciplinary network of artist peers—Charlotte Street’s Studio Residency Program encourages creative production, artistic experimentation and collaboration, professional development, and community building.
Charlotte Street Foundation addresses artist’s need for studio space in Kansas City by securing vacant downtown office space, in partnership with generous real estate owners. Since its inception in 2004, the program has supported hundreds of artists. Approximately 30 artists will be in residence during the year-long term (September through September). Charlotte Street strives to have an equal mix of emerging and established artists representing a multiplicity of disciplines. Applicants will be notified by July 2017.
Residencies are granted to selected artists for one-year terms, which run September through September. Artists who make exceptional use of their studios are eligible to apply for a second year term, with their applications subject to the same competitive review as new applicants. Full-time students will NOT be considered.
- Visual artists working in all media are encouraged to apply. Note, the use of toxic materials in studios is prohibited. The studio spaces do not enable the use of a kiln, welding equipment, or other heavy machinery. The majority of spaces are not light or sound-tight.
- Performing artists working in all disciplines are encouraged to apply, including theatre artists, choreographers/dancers, composers/musicians, singers/songwriters, performance artists, filmmakers, and cross-disciplinary artists.
- Writers working in all genres are encouraged to apply. Particular preference will be given to artists with a strong interest in working in a cross-disciplinary environment with access to other artists, including those whose focus is on critical/expository writing about art/artists and contemporary culture.
