It is about that time of the year for another annual Slide Slam event!
The Charlotte Street Foundation is excited to launch the 2017-2018 Studio Residency year with Slide Slam 2017! 30 incoming artists will gather together for 30 different presentations describing themselves.
The presentation style is influenced by Pecha Kucha and consists of 3-minute slide presentations from each of the 30 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. A list of the 30 residents selected can be found below.
The event is free and open to the public. 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.
