Created by the School of Art at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, Greensboro Project Space (GPS) is an off-campus contemporary art center that serves both the university and communities in Greensboro. GPS acts as a space for students to have critical dialogue that engages with people and issues outside of our university. Visiting artists and students themselves are encouraged to use the off-campus location as a catalyst for expansive and sustained interactions with a diverse set of local communities. A heavy dose of related curatorial and educational programs allows our community and student body to access our activities through multiple routes.
Although GPS is a project of the School of Art, we are also a public and creative platform for the Schools of Music, Theatre, and Dance. We focus on interdisciplinary practices and the constant redefinition of what art is or can be. Having all these disciplines in one space creates cross-collaboration between the schools that comprise the College of Visual and Performing Arts, and acts as an avenue for students to create larger collaborative communities to enhance the scope of their practice. As a result, the city of Greensboro gets a unique window into the CVPA’s expanded creative process.View the GPS website
