All the things happening now at Elsewhere
 

 

Hidden Histories this Saturday, Sept. 24

Tour participants listen to On Hamburger Square (2015); Mary Wells poses by her store's front door and "We Walk the World Two by Two" plaque (2015).

This Saturday, September 24th, Elsewhere is partnering with Fabric of Freedom and 17Days to discover how Greensboro’s South Elm neighborhood played a role in shaping history—from the Civil War to the Civil Rights Movement.

Starting at 1pm, South Elm Projects commissioned artists Samara Smith and Chloë Bass will tour you through Gate City's hidden treasures.

In her web-based audio tour, On Hamburger Square, Samara Smith explores the space and creates a multi-layered experience based on interviews.

Chloë Bass’s “We Walk the World Two by Two” (her Greensboro chapter of The Book of Everyday Instruction) interviews South Elm neighbors, highlights hidden labor over time, and distills these dialogues onto 4 historic plaques.

  • 1 - 2:30pm: Meet the artists at Elsewhere (606 S Elm St.) and take the downtown tour.
  • 3pm: Return to Elsewhere for a presentation by the artists and interviewees. 
  • 4pm: Join reception with community neighbors at Elsewhere in celebrating the 2 projects.
You can RSVP to Hidden Histories here.

The South Elm Projects are funded in part by ArtPlace America.
