Events and artist registry for KC arts community

Frontend Development+Wordpress Development

The Charlotte Street Foundation envisions Kansas City as a dynamic home for artists of various career stages and disciplines to thrive, while serving as natural catalysts for an exciting, innovative, and culturally rich city.

What They Needed

As a not-for-profit working in the arts community, CSF needed an easy platform to update and maintain. They needed a way to present the myriad events, performances and gallery showings they organize. And they wanted to build a comprehensive artist registry for artists involved in their organization.

The website was designed by Design Ranch. We developed the site.

What We Built

Custom Events Post Type
Custom events with “Save to Calendar” functionality built in to every event. They simply enter all the details, and the framework takes care of the formatting.

Profile Submissions
A digital submission form for artists to submit their information and recent work to the site. CSF can then review each submission before publishing it. Down the line, artists may be able to log in and update their own profiles. But before investing the time into that, we’re going to see how much interest there would be from the artist community.

100-Member Artist Registry
A searchable, filterable registry featuring over 100 artists in the KC area.

Press Clippings Post Type
Press clippings to help delineate outside publications’ coverage from CSF announcements.

Custom Page Templates
Easy-to-manage page layouts that automatically populate events and artists based on a tagging system.
