Her three-decade career working with arts and cultural organizations has taken her to cities across the country, and into Canada. But, for most of her adult life, Julie Dalgleish has been based in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area - until now.

Dalgleish moved to Kansas City in August, as the new executive director of the Charlotte Street Foundation, a nonprofit founded in 1997 by David Hughes – it provides fellowships, residencies, studios, and exhibitions for Kansas City artists. She talked about what encouraged her to make the move.

Charlotte Street Foundation today announced its new executive director: Julie Gordon Dalgleish, a 30-year veteran of arts and cultural organizations and foundations.

The search started in 2012 after Charlotte Street's founder and co-director David Hughes announced he'd step down.
