Elsewhere

Elsewhere invites creative individuals across disciplines to join us in building a living museum from a former thrift store that contains a 58-year collection of surplus. Residents create site-specific responses to the living museum, collection, and evolving community. Residents discover a creative process that is both immersive and responsive, challenging their practice with public parameters and critical perspective. Elsewhere is an experiment and adventure, a foray into the stuff of the recent past in order to design creative futures. There are a plentitude of resources, concepts, and collaborators with which to imagine new approaches and hypotheses in art and livelihood. The environment is rugged, responsive, and remarkably public, a landscape for invention and adaption to new structures for living, working, and playing.

Past residencies at Elsewhere have included visual artists, writers, musicians, sound artists, performers, curators, and anthropologists, but our program is open to individuals and groups across disciplines and media. Perhaps you are a culinary artist, carpenter, urban farmer, historian or documentarian, architect or designer. If you have a vision and a desire to experiment and explore with a community within a world of things then we welcome you.
