A large part of what the Rocket Grants program does is aimed towards developing new kinds of audiences and connecting artists with our community in novel and unexpected ways.

The venues, processes and issues that our awarded projects explore may be just as unfamiliar to established arts institutions in our region as they are to the general public.

Charlotte Street Foundation and the Spencer Museum of Art believe so strongly in the value of artists participating in stirring up, changing and modeling conversations about our present and future communities, that we have committed to strengthening platforms that facilitate thoughtful dialogue about this kind of work.

The attached  Press Release details the four initiatives that are launching this spring to stimulate critical exchange, and to build awareness and greater understanding related to the vital role that artists play in the Kansas City regional community.

We hope that you will join us by following, and perhaps participating in the conversations that will ensue…
