Residencies Elsewhere’ 2019 Residencies
NOTE: This opp listing has expired and may no longer be relevant!
International Deadline: July 27, 2018 – Elsewhere is now accepting applications for 2019 opportunities from creatives working across media, fields, and disciplines. Elsewhere’s evolving collection of past projects, material surplus, unique concepts, and access to local and national communities provide an unparalleled site for creative inquiry. Join us in using the collection of a former thrift store to inspire new futures from old things!
Annually, 35 creatives are selected to collectively live and work within Elsewhere creating new work for the Living Museum. Residencies include collaboration and curatorial guidance with Elsewhere’s team of staff, interns, community members, and peer residents. Residencies are available during 5 sessions, each 2-4 weeks long with up to 7 residents at a time. Additionally, residents receive room & board, material, tool, and equipment access, as well as public engagement and programming opportunities, documentation, promotion, online and in-museum representation of work. The Residency program is partially subsidized with a nominal fee.
Residents have access to the enormous collection of textiles, toys, books, consumer technologies, clothes, brik-a-brac, and general thrift for transformation. A curatorial team stewards the creative process and collection use, provides critical feedback, supports public events, and facilitates connections with Greensboro neighbors and Elsewhere’s international network.
Makers, thinkers and doers of all kinds working across media (sound, video, installation, performance, painting, sound, emerging technologies, food) fields (administrators, organizers, educators, researchers, curators, homesteaders, scholars, designers, writers) and discipline (futurists, cross-sector, interdisciplinary, conceptual, social, system-thinkers) are encouraged to apply.
Those with an interest in participation, co-creation, reuse, public practice, social engagement, intersectional critique, urban intervention, and experimental living are an excellent fit for this program. Collectives and collaborative groups, as well as residents who would like to live off-site, are also welcome!
In 2019 Elsewhere is offering 10 FELLOWSHIPS which sponsor the month-long residency, provide a travel stipend and $1000 honorarium. 5 Fellowships will support creatives raised or based in the Southern US through the Southern Constellations Fellowship. 5 Exchange Fellowships support connectivity between Elsewhere and an annually selected Metropol (2019: Philadelphia).
