2009 special residencies for environmental artists, designers, 
sustainable-builders and activists


Elsewhere, an arts production site and living museum in downtown 
Greensboro, NC, is seeking eco-cultural producers for Urban-Green 
residencies during the 2009 spring and summer seasons . Set in a 
reclaimed alley behind a former thrift store housing a 58-year 
collection of American surplus, thrift, and antiques, Elsewhere invites 
environmental practitioners to utilize this space and creative resources 
to pursue site-specific material, conceptual, and/or 
infrastructure-based projects. Elsewhere's museum and public park 
provides dynamic architectures for the creation and installation of 
works, as well as opportunities to implement innovative environmental 
programs, practices, and systems. At Elsewhere, artists live and work 
within transforming public installations indoors and out; 
these interactive environments become platforms for re-conceptualizing 
the theory and practice of art-making as an ongoing process of exchange 
in community.   Creators and collaborative groups interested in our 
Urban-Green initiative should email residencies at elsewhereelsewhere.org 
<mailto:residencies at elsewhereelsewhere.org> with "Green Residency" in 
the subject line to receive an application and brochure.  We review 
applications at the end of each month.
