Team Eyeo is comprised of a few friends who wanted to make something cool happen; Dave Schroeder, Jer Thorp, Wes Grubbs and Caitlin Rae Hargarten.
INQUIRIES – We love ’em!
Speaking / Here’s an answer to a popular question: We don’t do a formal call for submissions for talks. Just send us a note and some links about yourself and your work and we’ll check it out. We love to see what people are up to. What we don’t know could fill a book, and people are killing it everywhere, so don’t be shy. Please note: We don’t respond to inquiries from PR firms working to get speaking gigs for their clients. (Unless your client is Ryoji Ikeda – then please get in touch.)
Sponsoring / We love our sponsors. Our attendees appreciate what they do, and what they make possible at Eyeo. Shoot Dave an email if you’d like to learn more about supporting the festival and the community it gathers.
Dave Schroeder is the primary contact. Don’t be afraid to reach out and hit him with questions or requests.

Dave Schroeder is the owner and operator of Pilotvibe, an entity known initially for Music & Sound Design services, but more and more for producing events like the Eyeo Festival and INST-INT. He’s mostly not very professional, yet somehow he gets to do all the writing, among other things.
Jer Thorp is a data artist, thinker, speaker and partner at the Office for Creative Research in NYC. He blogs at blprnt.com. [@blprnt] Within the last year he’s been in down really deep in a submarine and charged by elephants (on land).
Wes Grubbs founded the data visualization studio Pitch Interactive where he is in charge of technical and creative direction. Find him/them rocking it in Oakland, CA. [@pitchinc] In addition to pitching and delivering beautiful work, he’s also pretty prolific at pitching tents in the mountains of California.
Caitlin Rae Hargarten is an arts event instigator + organizer, google doc addict/guru, and makes video work with her partner Sam under the moniker Squawk. Despite living in Minnesota, she remains loyal to Wisconsin. (Keep the state-pride keepsakes coming Ma Hargarten.)
