Artists. $20,000 stipend and work in fellowship. EYEBEAM FELLOWSHIP OPEN CALL THEME: WHAT IS HUMAN ABOUT TECHNOLOGY? September 1, 2023

 One of the first organizations dedicated to supporting artists who create with technology, Eyebeam aims to support artists who make radical, independent work about how we live. 

Since its founding more than 20 years ago, over 500 artists have received support through its flagship fellowship, with hundreds more participating in exhibitions and gatherings. Eyebeam has released a 2024 fellowship open call with the theme: What is human about technology? Through the fellowship, Eyebeam calls on artists to bring their innate mental, spiritual, and physical aspects of what it means to be human into play with technology to affirm humanity’s role as creators—not spectators—of our collective techno-future. Eyebeam seeks artists to explore the creative potentials of technologies that support and enhance the best of human intelligence and imagination. In particular, Eyebeam is interested in supporting those artists whose efforts consider the impact of technology on individuals and communities who face additional barriers to access and inclusion. Adopting a human-centric approach to technology, led by artists, can ensure that future technology is developed and used to promote human well-being and agency rather than corporate consumption.

Selected artists participating in this six-month program will receive a $20,000 stipend and access to a network of peers, mentors, and experts in the field and to partnered state-of-the-art facilities and resources. Eyebeam will select five non-New York-based artists from anywhere in the world and five NYC-based artists for this fellowship. The fellowship will hybridize online and in-person components, including workshops, mentorship sessions, and networking opportunities. Additionally, Eyebeam aims to make available robust opportunities for exhibition, presentation, and public engagement at the close of the fellowship.

The fellowship cycle will run from February 15, 2024, through August 15, 2024.
