The SoCo Fellowship is an annual, curated residency program that explores experimental practices across a network of Southern artists and organizations. SoCo Residents are specially featured in press, public events, and exhibitions. This Fellowship is part of Elsewhere’s larger Southern Constellations Program, which includes Southern Constellations Convergences, SoCo exhibits, and Rural Residencies on a 1-2 year cycle.

This is part of our call for over 30 artists to participate in our 2022 Residency Program.⁠ ⁠

Residents collectively live and work within Elsewhere to create projects that activate the Living Museum. Work produced is site-specific and responsive, exploring Elsewhere’s environment, material inventories, cultural histories, social systems, neighborhood communities, and past projects. All objects and artworks remain part of the museum, available for continued transformation by future creatives.

We will host a BIPOC Town Hall on Tuesday 1/26 from 6-7PM EST on Zoom to answer questions of prospective BIPOC applicants (register here).⁠ ⁠

Who make great candidates for residencies at Elsewhere?⁠ ⁠Makers, doers, and thinkers of all kinds, working in site-specificity and across disciplines, who demonstrate radical creativity and resourcefulness, are incredibly inclusive and intentional when creating in relation to underserved or marginalized communities, have capacity to produce new work independently in a short period of time, and who stand to grow personally, professionally, and/or artistically from this experience.⁠

*New* Artists In Residence Financial Support Fund. Invited artists may now request additional financial support needed to be able to participate in the residency. You can donate directly to help increase this pool of funds to $5,000 to make our residency more accessible to artists who face financial barriers to participation.

Elsewhere is a living museum, international artist residency, and collaborative learning laboratory built from Sylvia Gray’s three-story thrift store and her 58-year collection of material culture and surplus.
