Since opening our doors in Bushwick in 2017, we have welcomed close to 5,000 people for free public programs ranging from intimate talks with pioneers in art + tech, such as Joan Jonas and Charles Atlas, to Disability Artistry Wikipedia Edit-a-thons, and engaged thousands online worldwide.
In that time we also launched the Eyebeam Center for the Future of Journalism, which has helped artists and journalists collaborate with major media outlets such as The Nation, The New York Review of Books, The Atlantic, Gizmodo, Wired, Guardian and more.
Stephanie Dinkins creates dialog about artificial intelligence as it intersects race, gender, aging, and our future histories. Since wrapping up her residency, Dinkins was awarded the Soros Equity, and Sundance New Frontiers Fellowships. Wired, Art In America, Art21, The New York Times and Washington Post, have recently covered Dinkins’ art and ideas.

From Beijing to Mexico City, our alumni have become part of a growing network of global ambassadors, expanding the conversation around technology’s effect on society through art.
You can help us fulfill Eyebeam’s mission — support artists’ work that reveals new paths toward a more just future. Together, we can seize this moment and shift the global conversation around our relationship to technology. This is a chance to help re-imagine new relationships to our tools, created from a foundation of freedom that is untethered to pure profit motivation. Please consider supporting this mission through a donation, in any amount.
