UNC Charlotte's Mobile Arts & Community Experience (MAX) is in residency in the Montclaire neighborhood through October 22. Montclaire is a neighborhood established more than 50 years ago in the south Charlotte area and hosts a diverse group of individuals, families, schools, businesses, and institutions. Situated in the center of this neighborhood is the culturally diverse Title I CMS school, Montclaire Elementary. MAX will reside on the grounds at Montclaire Elementary for four weeks in September-October and host in-school and after-school programs for the students of Montclaire, as well as open community programming on Saturdays.

UNC Charlotte students will be visiting MAX to work on literacy and dance  with elementary children during the school day. Other offerings include STEM education in partnership with Discovery Place, Growth Through Gardening, fitness with Cara Zara Hooping, and bicycle safety for all ages, led by Trips for Kids.

The Montclaire residency is presented in partnership with Discovery Place and Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools and is funded by the Knight Foundation.
