2015 Projects + Programs
Each year, Elsewhere offers a suite of projects around themes that extend our mission.
This year's projects are:
Elsewhere's 100-year old historic building needs renovation to sustain and advance our artist residency and museum operations. We're about to launch a kickstarter campaign on March 2 with great rewards for giving. Help continue collaborative culture in Greensboro and around the globe.
South Elm Projects
A series of site specific interventions with global artists and neighborhood partners that will reform overlooked and undervalued alleys and green spaces in Greensboro's South Elm neighborhood to enhance downtown walkability, community investment, and grassroots creativity. Artists selected for South Elm Projects will be announced in March.
A curatorial initiative that advances Elsewhere’s commitment to local wisdom and regional participation in global contemporary conversations that invites six artists from across the South for residencies in Elsewhere's museum. The initiative builds an expanded network of experimental, interdisciplinary art practices to support collaboration across the region. 2015 Fellows will be announced in March.
Museum as Instrument
A month long special residency bringing a group of Chicago based sound artists to the museum to create a series of new sound works and performances at the museum that turn the building itself into a musical instrument. Shannon Stratton, an Independent Curator and the Director of Threewalls (Chicago) and Joe Jeffers, musician, producer and Director of 8550 Ohio (Chicago and Chersterhill, OH) will co-curate the events and art works created through this residency. June and early July 2015.
Go Elsewhere Residencies
Our general residency program, bringing together creatives from across the globe to create projects that re-invent and evolve Elsewhere as an ever changing living museum by engaging our massive inventory of surplus and our community. Artists in this program learn by doing and share their process with the public through skill shares, presentations, and performances. Artists-in-residence will be announced in March.
QueerLab | Act Out
A youth-led media program exploring LGBTQ experience in North Carolina, now in it’s 3rd season. Each QueerLab session brings together an editorial team of queer identifying youth to publish I Don’t Do Boxes, and organize workshops focused on creative media production and digital storytelling. In partnership with Queer People of Color Collective (QPOCC), this year’s Queerlab focuses on exploring questions of queer actions and activism.
FoodLab is a project of Elsewhere's education program, Colab, that partners teaching artists with local schools to produce collaborative art works, introduce contemporary creative practices and support learning across curricula. Organized through a partnership with Jackson Middle School and Communities in Schools in Greensboro, NC, this project launches in March.
