1. Elsewhere hosts Greensboro PICNIC on First Friday, May 3, from 6pm to 10pm at Elsewhere (606 S. Elm Street, Greensboro). PICNIC--Partners In City, Neighbors In Community--is a public supper in downtown Greensboro where neighbors dine together and give together. PICNIC-goers pay $5-$20 (sliding scale) and enjoy a locally-sourced meal and an opportunity to fund a worthy project voted on by attendees. The winning proposal will receive the proceeds of the dinner right then and there! As an open platform for funding local projects through dinner conversations, Greensboro's PICNIC is part of a national network of suppers encouraging neighbors to fund communities. 

Dinner begins at 6pm. Project Presentations at 7pm. Voting Closes at 8pm followed shortly by the announcement of the winning project. 

Read the creative storytelling proposals and prepare to cast your vote. 

PICNIC is a collaboration with Greensboro Participatory Budgeting and is seeded by a grant from Building Stronger Neighborhoods
