This summer, Eyebeam will host its first ever fully (Digital) Day Camp, open to high school students across the country. Students will virtually work alongside artist-educators and staff, engaging in hands-on workshops focusing on art and technology tools towards building care. Over the course of five weeks, students will be invited to explore and create forms of care for themselves and their communities, resulting in a virtual sharing on the last day.
We want you to know that the Eyebeam team is hard at work finding new ways to uplift artists and engage with the public. We know how difficult maintaining normalcy is at this moment, but we also want to create a communal space for connections and innovation.
We are deeply committed to supporting the groundbreaking work of artists during this crisis. As such, we want to know what you need. We want to know: How can we support you in this time?
The Eyebeam team stands in solidarity with protesters demanding justice, accountability, and change from the blatant brutality of police against Black Americans. Say their names: George (Big) Floyd, Tony McDade, Regis Korchinkski-Paquet, Yassin Mohamed, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, Nina Pop, Dreasjon (Sean) Reed.
