“Elsewhere is a museum and artist residency set in a 3-floor, former, thrift store. With people and things, we build collaborative futures.”

Elsewhere’s environment is highly stimulating, conceptual, and social – a space of incredible material density and continuous public activity. Composed of layers of artwork and objects, there are no white walls, blank spaces, or separate studios. Everything is interpreted contextually and in situ, explored in creative real space and time. Residents respond to present orders to arrange possible futures and make visible the conceptual, material, and social influences of Elsewhere. Projects engage Elsewhere’s Museum as a platform for creative, performative, research-based, and curatorial experimentation. The inventory of objects form a natural resource, archive, and finite set of incredible things, available for transformation when used thoughtfully.

The museum is a public space and also a public home. Artists live on the second floor, which includes the artist-built boarding house as well as installation works. The kitchen is centrally featured within the museum, and exhibits Elsewhere’s highly organized, cooperative, living practices to public visitors. Public studios include a wood shop, fabric workshop, techlab, storefront theater, vintage wardrobe, garden, and communal kitchen. Elsewhere also provides artists with access to neighboring makerspaces.

Elsewhere is situated in downtown Greensboro, a rapidly changing small southern city. With five universities and a tremendous historical and social legacy of textiles and civil rights, there is a lot of creative and critical work happening. Elsewhere is a creative anchor within the historic downtown, among shops, eateries, and activist churches, but also within food deserts, gentrifying neighborhoods, and empty buildings.

We share our block with a co-working space, a makerspace, a piano restorer, a sneaker shop, a pizza church, and several antique stores. We partner with social and justice organizations, downtown neighborhood associations, public schools, non-profits, universities and city departments. Elsewhere shares its space with #BlackLivesMatter: Greensboro (#BLMGateCity) and is a site for community building, social organizing, and direct action. As a post-industrial, southern city with “progressive roots,” Greensboro citizens are actively invested in fostering social, economic, and racial equity. These concerns have always been part of the city’s fabric.



The curatorial team at Elsewhere works together to creatively lead their departments, shape a dynamic contemporary art organization, connect a network of global artists with local community, and test their skills with a highly invested team that is evolving the creative functions of the work environment.

Applicants should be open, inventive, system-minded, flexible, and hardworking individuals who work best as part of a team. The Communications Manager position is creative, administrative, and departmental, but requires imaginative, progressive, inventive execution and a great attitude.

Start date: April 2018

Position open until filled. Send resume/CV and letter of interest to museum@goelsewhere.org (subject: *Your Name,* Comm Position).

Due to a high volume of applications, please reserve your questions until March 1st, 2018.
