2. South Elm Projects Artists Launch New Public Artworks in Greensboro
Heather Hart

The Porch Project, Black Lunch Tables are a series of interlocking tables designed for intimate public conversations and community events created by Heather Hart

Opening Events | October 3 + 4

On October 3 from 11am to 1pm, the public is invited to a free community potluck and performances located on the Black Lunch Tables. Please bring a dish to share if you'd like.

On October 4, in collaboration with Jina Valentine, Hart will host The Black Lunch Table, a conversation series that takes the lunch phenomenon as its starting point to make visible the connections and dialogue that exists between contemporary artists of color. Events are audio-recorded and transcribed in order to further authenticate both the community and its voices. These recordings will become part of an archive dedicated to gathering the experience and perspective of contemporary artists of color from across the country. Seating is limited, please RSVP to Heather Hart at blacklunchtable@gmail.com for more information and to participate.

All events take place at the site of the project on the corner of Bragg Street and Arlington Street. Contact production@goelsewhere.org for more information. 

Buster Simpson

Vertical Landscapes, a hydroponic system for the new vertical downspouts in The Yard behind Elsewhere created by Buster Simpson. These vertical downspouts will capture rainwater from the roof and funnel it through these intricate pipe systems and water the plants growing out of the hubs. 
Chloe Bass

Chloë Bass is onsite through October 7th working on the third chapter of her ongoing project, 
The Book of Everyday Instruction, which explores one-on-one social interaction. Chapter Three: We walk the world two by two focuses on the creation of history: who gets to make history, and how is it recorded? Is the history of a place as much inscribed in the minor everyday as it is in major events of record? Chloë will be working with pairs of people in the South Elm area to produce a series of "everyday history" plaques for Greensboro.

Greensboro Permaculture Guild + Common Grounds

The Yard is a landscape plan and permaculture installation that emphasizes the collaboration between neighbors and businesses in the green space behind the 600 block of South Elm Street. The Yard was designed and planted by the Greensboro Permaculture Guild and built by Common Grounds to create a community space behind Elsewhere, The Forge, and HQ Greensboro.
More South Elm Projects:

See the public artworks already created throughout the neighborhood for South Elm Projects: 
Hopscotch by Agustina Woodgate, Neighborhood Murals by MILAGROS Collective, Blind Field Shuttle by Carmen Papalia, Kit-O-Cart by Chat Travieso, and On Hamburger Square by Samara Smith. 

In October, Elsewhere welcomes two more South Elm Projects artists, Works Progress Studio and artist collective Camp Little Hope, to create new artworks and public programming throughout the South Elm neighborhood. 
3. Expanding the Constellation : Elsewhere at Artspace
