• Eyebeam: Our Story

    127 views 4 months ago
    Founded in 1998, Eyebeam was the very first space of its kind: a place to think creatively and critically about how technology was transforming our society. Eyebeam gives time, space and money through its residency program to artists whose work shapes our world – ranging from the first-ever open-source social sharing tool (reBlog, 2004) to more recently the open-source educational startup littleBits (2009), alongside arts activism such as the first Feminist Wikipedia Edit-A-Thon (2013). Everything we do is guided by a focus on our values: openness, invention and justice.

    Our residents are chosen with inclusivity and equity as a priority. We receive hundreds of applications a year through a free online process and the adjudication process is carried out by a diverse group of jury members. Our residents become the guiding force of our public programs; the leaders of our workshops; and the contributors to our onsite and online discussions, all fueled by a belief in social impact.

    Our public events are free and open to anyone who wishes to attend. The venue is ADA accessible, and we are working to further improve accessibility. We aim to offer American Sign Language (ASL) interpretation, livestream and record all events with closed captioning, and work with a more accessible online application platform to host our residency application process.
