“5 Minute Stories,” 2015. Courtesy of Elsewhere.

Elsewhere—a living museum, residency and creative laboratory set inside a former thrift store—is accepting applications from artists and researchers working across all media, fields and disciplines for 2016.

Elsewhere’s three-story museum contains a vast 60-year inventory of cultural surplus and thrift, no longer for sale and available for interpretation and transformation by its visiting residents. Residents live and work within Elsewhere’s ever-evolving installation, creating site-specific works that engage the museum’s collection, context and communities. Elsewhere encourages investigations into people and things, exploring inventories, artworks, living systems, and neighbors that model, exemplify, and invent new ways of living, working, and playing.

Fellowships available for artists born or based in the South.
Curatorial positions and internships also available.
Elsewhere Retreats for students
Elsewhere Retreats welcome university classes for immersive retreats that explore contemporary art, site-specific, and community practices. Creative Retreats are 1–5 day group residencies that challenge students to think differently about site-specificity, storytelling, sustainability, experimentation and collaboration in their art practice. Retreats foster collaborative dynamics and critical idea exchange while introducing students to the professional workings of an alternative, non-commercial arts organization combining radical action and creative production in the south.

Take your class on an adventure.
