Elsewhere is a living museum set within a former thrift store.
Elsewhere is re-inventing old things to build collaborative futures. Creative projects, learning initiatives and public works with global artists and local neighbors enliven and inspire downtown Greensboro and beyond.
Elsewhere residencies invite artists, curators, scholars, makers, storytellers, archivists, and educators to contribute to and interpret Elsewhere’s concepts, collections, and communities utilizing the museum’s immense 58-year collection of second-hand surplus as resource and inspiration for site-specific projects.
Elsewhere’s three-story museum is an evolving environment of living installations, public studios, and material resources. Elsewhere offers an experimental context for investigating material culture, engaging process and practice, and developing new collaborative approaches. Elsewhere is an active participant in the vitalization of its emerging downtown neighborhood, and an exceptional place for rethinking things in everyday and extraordinary culture.
Individuals and collaborative teams working across media, fields, and disciplines are encouraged to apply. Residencies are for 2-6 week project periods. Creative retreats, internships, fellowships and curatorial fellowships are also available.
