Thanks to an invitation from Cynthia Gehrig from the Jerome Foundation, a group of Eyebeamers will be presenting at the annual Grantmakers in the Arts Conference on October 20.



The title of the panel:

Social Networking Technology: Spaces for Creation, Engagement, Discourse and Promotion

Tuesday, October 20, 9:30 am – 11:00 am

Organized by Cynthia Gehrig, president, Jerome Foundation

Presented by Amanda McDonald Crowley, executive director, Eyebeam Art + Technology Center; and artists Scott Kildall, Britta Riley and Brooke Singer.

Our goal is to give an overview of current work which uses social networking technologies not just to promote work, but in the actual production of art: its about giving grantmakers an overview of how contemporary artists are using these tools to develop socially engaged work.
