Launched in October 2021, Fractal Fellowships is a radically reimagined iteration of Eyebeam’s flagship residency that fully hands over authority to artist cohorts. Cohorts will collectively create new systems for artist support and resource distribution, shifting the dynamic from institutions to the artists themselves.
The Eyebeam Center for the Future of Journalism (ECFJ) is an experimental grant-making program that supports artists and artist-journalist teams producing innovative and revelatory journalistic work for major media outlets. This program, made possible by Craig Newmark Philanthropies, paves the way for artists to help revolutionize how complex moments are made more comprehensible.
Digital Day Camp (DDC) is Eyebeam’s longest-running program. DDC is an intensive, multi-week youth technology program taught by artists and serving approximately 20 NYC public high school students each summer.

Eyebeam believes that the open distribution of inventive work by a broad and diverse group of artists provides an antidote to toxic supremacy in its many forms. Eyebeam is committed to creating equitable systems in support of creativity and in service to artists—and therefore to society at large.
Can you imagine a future designed by artists? We can—and that future is built on optimism.
