Use the collection of a former thrift store to rethink people, places, and things of the everyday and the extraordinary.

Call for Applications

Elsewhere, a living museum, residency and creative laboratory inside a former thrift store in downtown Greensboro, North Carolina, is now accepting applications for 2017/18 residencies, fellowships, and internships from artists and organizers working across all media, fields and disciplines. Elsewhere’s three-story museum contains an evolving collection of artworks, cultural and material surplus that provide an experimental context for artists to create new work.

Elsewhere does not discriminate on the basis of race, age, creed, color, religion, national origin or ancestry, gender identity, disability, sexual orientation, expression or parents/guardians with children. Elsewhere, like many art institutions, is a predominantly white space. In an effort to resist and decolonize systemic cultures of intersectional oppression, we encourage queer and trans artists of color to apply.
