Friday, November 6

South Elm Water Bar Opening | 6-10pm, at Elsewhere

This First Friday Works Progress Studio will dedicate the South Elm Water Bar, a new piece of public furniture that explores the South Elm neighborhood’s hydrosocial connection to water in the past, present and future. The Water Bar will be open and serving local tap water all night long, staffed by employees and friends of the City of Greensboro’s Water Resource Department. It is being produced as a commission for Elsewhere’s South Elm Projects curatorial initiative, which seeds the neighborhood with series of site specific activations between artists and neighborhood partners that reform overlooked alleys and green spaces to enhance downtown walkability, community investment, and grassroots creativity.

Neighborhood Walking Tour with Camp Little Hope | 4pm, Meet at Elsewhere

Join us for a walking tour of Elsewhere’s South Elm neighborhood with resident artists, Camp Little Hope and The Chamber of Commons. They will present highlights from a series of field guides they created for the neighborhood that present new ways to see and understand the complex and nuanced histories of this place.

Camp Little Hope is a team of artists. With a combined background in fine arts, education, design, economics, engineering, anthropology, and community engagement, they imagine new worlds through public artworks, curatorial interventions, designed artifacts, published information, and catalyzed epiphanies.

This project is part of their South Elm Projects commission with Elsewhere to present new perspectives on the neighborhood and how we understand social change.

You can find their Field Guides at local bookstores, the Chamber of Commerce, Elsewhere and at tourist hubs throughout the city.

Sunday, November 8

The Black Lunch Table Conversation Series | 11am + 2pm in the lot at the corner of Bragg Street and Arlington Street

11am | Black Lunch Table Event: Recording Our (Art) History

Greensboro artists of African descent are invited to be part of an event to dialog on issues facing our community.

Free, refreshments provided. Seating is Limited. Please RSVP to Heather Hart at blacklunchtable@gmail.com for more information and to participate.

The Black Lunch Table, a collaboration between artists Heather Hart and Jina Valentine, takes the lunchroom phenomenon as its starting point to make visible the connections and dialogue that exists between contemporary artists of color. Providing a space to discuss critical issues strengthens the bonds within our nebulous community and validates shared concerns through exchange. BLT 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.


2pm | Black Lunch Table Event: Black Lives Matter

Everyone is invited to be part of this integrated table recording our ideas, sharing our thoughts and forming new connections with fellow community members.

Free, refreshments provided. Seating is Limited. Please RSVP to Heather Hart at blacklunchtable@gmail.com for more information and to participate.

Using the idea of the lunch table as a discursive site where social connections are made, organizing is planned, social hierarchies revealed, and power dynamics are played out, this session will offer focused conversations on the divisions and connections that exist within our community, while also laying out new productive relationships to continue the movement for dismantling institutional racism.
