Greensboro


View Larger Map

Greensboro, NC is a burgeoning city in the center of North Carolina about three hours from the mountains and three hours from the coast. When we first arrived in Greensboro, we were one of few transient passer-bys on a Friday night, walking fisher price snoopy dogs down empty streets. Now, our toy dogs travel down a busy street filled with patrons of bars, clubs, restaurants, and parks on the weekends and a lively business and coffee community during the days. Greensboro is actively revitalizing its downtown, which fosters a natural collaboration between Elsewhere’s street-level museum and many of the city’s forward-thinking civilians and organizations. While we participate in the growth, we are also trying to advance an inclusive, mindful, and aware downtown development process through public art projects and programs. People here are unusually nice and exceptionally collaborative, and it makes for a fabulous litany of wonderful interactions.

Neighborhood

Our partners in responsible downtown action include Table16 Restaurant, The Mellow Mushroom, Art Mongers, Mary’s Antiques, Coe’s Grocer, Area, The Downtown Greenway, Action Greensboro, Green Hill Center for NC Art, The Center for Creative Leadership, Weatherspoon Art Museum,

 

SEA (the South Elm Alliance) is a neighborhood group of residents, business owners, and civilians utilizing creative practices to preserve and connect the South Elm neighborhood of Greensboro surrounding Elsewhere’s inland island. SEA projects encourage social creativity as a mode for exploring place as a convergence of past, present, and future. SEA participants build paths for Greensboro’s downtown revitalization that are inclusive, inventive and conscientious. We host mapping events, public dinners, skill-shares, front window performances, neighborhood tours, and urban games as a mode of exploring and interacting with our neighborhood and its peoples. SEA supports local businesses, connects neighbors, and defends thoughtful development. see SEA projects. see SEA events.
