Elsewhere is an eclectic, radical, experimental, whimsical, grass-roots, rural sci-fi, imaginative residency space in Paonia, Colorado that provides nourishment for the creative soul with a mission to be a bridge between local and global communities. They provide a unique and fertile landscape that nurtures artists and their artistic processes. They offer focused time and space for artists to transcend to new levels in their work, ideas, and lives.
The Residency Program provides space and time for artists. They welcome visual artists, writers, composer/musicians, performance artists at any stage of their careers as well as scientists, activists, teachers, students, or any kind of creative thinker interested in exploring and expanding their work in a unique and supportive environment. Elsewhere consists of artistically crafted and unique living and studio spaces. Time spans are individually based - 1 to 6 months, accommodating 4 to 6 artists at a time.
