This face-on view of the old Charlotte Street School shows the oldest section of the building, which dates from 1884. It was designed by James C. Dumaresq of Halifax, who also designed the New Brunswick legislature, and Harry H. Mott of Saint John.

Latest News


The Board of Directors of the Charlotte Street Arts Centre is pleased to announce Kate Rogers as the organization’s new Executive Director.

Kate Rogers has been involved in the arts and culture sector as an arts administrator, consultant and advocate for almost 20 years. With a master’s degree in Political Science, she has lent her professional expertise to advancing culture at the local, provincial and national level. She is the past Executive Director of the NB Crafts Council, a founding co-chair of the Fredericton Arts Alliance, an advisor to ArtsLink NB, a member of the New Brunswick College of Craft and Design Advisory Committee and a member of the Fredericton Playhouse Board of Directors. As a Fredericton City Councillor for College Hill/ East Downtown, Kate serves as Chair of the city's Arts and Culture Advisory Committee and is a strong proponent for enhancing all aspects of city life through the infusion and promotion of arts and culture.

Rogers' relationship with the Charlotte Street Arts Centre is long-standing. As one of the original group that lobbied the Province of New Brunswick to turn over the Charlotte Street School to the community for use as an arts centre, she was part of the visioning and planning for its use. She was formative in the creation of Fredericton Arts & Learning, Inc. and supportive of efforts to renovate the school and establish the Charlotte Street Arts Centre. Under Kate's direction, the NB Crafts Council was an early tenant of the building. As a consultant, Kate worked on the design of the centre's Culture Garden. As a community member, she has been involved as an organizer and participant in CSAC programming.

Kate values the important role that the Charlotte Street Arts Centre plays in the cultural fabric of the city and province. Through community-based exhibitions, educational programming, and exposure of emerging to professional artists, the CSAC is an integral component of the community's creative life. Kate welcomes the opportunity to work with the CSAC’s board of directors, tenants, artists and the community to fulfill its mission of being a focal point for creation, presentation and education in the arts.
