Elsewhere is now accepting applications for 2020 Residencies from creatives working across media, fields, and disciplines. Elsewhere is an unparalleled site for creative inquiry, join in the experiment of building new futures from old things! DEADLINE: July 8, 2019 at 11:59pm EST.
Annually, 35 residents are selected to collectively live and work within Elsewhere to create projects that activate the Living Museum. Work produced is site-specific and responsive, exploring Elsewhere’s environment, material inventories, cultural histories, social systems, neighborhood communities, and past projects. All objects and artworks remain part of the museum, available for continued transformation by future creatives.
Residents have access to the enormous collection of textiles, toys, books, consumer technologies, clothes, bric-a-brac, and general thrift for transformation. A curatorial team stewards the creative process and collection use, provides critical feedback, supports public events, and facilitates connections with Greensboro neighbors and Elsewhere’s international network.
Makers, thinkers, and doers of all kinds working across media (sound, video, installation, performance, painting, emerging technologies, food, writing), fields (art, healthcare, admin, journalism, education, curatorial, homesteading, academia,design, science) and disciplines (across-sectors, interdisciplinary, conceptual, social, futurist, research) are encouraged to apply. Those with an interest in participation, co-creation, reuse, public practice, social engagement, institutional critique, urban intervention, and experimental living are an excellent fit for this program. Collectives and collaborative groups as well as residents who would like to live off-site, are also welcome!
Residents receive room & board, material, and equipment access, as well as, public engagement and programming opportunities, documentation, promotion, online and in-museum representation of work. The Residency program is partially subsidized with a nominal fee. In 2020, Elsewhere is offering various opportunities to fund parent artists and/or individuals from the Southern US or Kansas City.
Elsewhere does not discriminate on the basis of race, age, creed, color, religion, national origin or ancestry, gender identity, ability, sexual orientation, expression or parents/guardians with children. Elsewhere shares a radically expansive understanding of creative practice and identity. We strive for a diverse representation of voices, life experiences, views, and interests to reflect the collaborative community we have and wish to serve. To decolonize systemic structures of institutional oppression, we encourage queer creatives of color to apply. If there are accessibility needs or questions, please contact [email protected].
