With the support of the Mellon Fellowship at the Gray Center in 2013, Never The Same expanded our work into a full blown educational, curatorial, and archival project. For more info on this year’s activities,visit the Gray Center’s NTS project page. The recent activities framed as an “Unfurling” include:
- Programs: A series of show-n-tell events called Unfurlings and a symposium about local, alternative, and subcultural archiving efforts nationally to take place June 7;
- Curriculum: a spring course at UIC utilizing the NTS interviews as readings; a summerseminar at the University of Chicago throughout July and in the fall at the Newberry Library.
- An exhibition of commissioned art works developed by local artists in response to materials in the NTS archive, interviews, and programs.
- And finally a physical publication documenting the year of programs and related projects to complement our ongoing web publishing.
