Announcing Eyebeam/Public Knowledge Inaugural Residency Award

Thumbnail

Public Knowledge and Eyebeam are thrilled to announce the inaugural recipient of this first-of-its kind joint residency program: Elisa Kreisinger! Elisa will participate in an initial 2-week orientation and familiarization process at Public Knowledge's Washington, D.C. offices and then work at Eyebeam, with our community, facilities and equipment, to produce a new work that will have a clear relationship to both organizations’ shared issue areas.

Public Knowledge is a public interest advocacy organization in Washington, DC that seeks to ensure that copyright law and communications policy promote creativity, free speech, and democratic values.

Eyebeam was born at a time when the technologies that now form the bedrock of daily life were just beginning to expand into wider arenas. A key component of Eyebeam’s mission is to support public access through open-source projects and collaboration.

This collaboration between the two organizations which are looking at many of the same issues will result in real-world, tangible, outcomes which we hope will significantly impact the public discourse around open culture. We’ll be documenting the process and hope you will join us in this exciting new initiative!
