Elsewhere would like to send our love to the artist communities and families that are suffering after the recent fire at Ghost Ship in Oakland. Seeing the pictures of this space and knowing the struggle for code compliance, we can't help but feel a kinship.

We are eternally grateful to all the people who have helped Elsewhere restore its building--providing robust sprinkler, new electrical, fire alarm, exit, and monitoring system, egress and evacuation systems--to provide life safety for artist communities around the world and friends here in Greensboro.

We are heartbroken by this tragedy and send love to all those directly affected.
