What Attendees Say

‘I’ve never been to a conference with such emphasis on the community – such a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.’

‘My first Eyeo and I loved it. It reset my expectations about my field and I’m excited about it in a way I haven’t been before.’

‘Very multidisciplinary–  it was amazing to let my mind wander into new spaces outside of my immediate discipline.’

‘This was my first Eyeo after being told for many years by many friends I should go. It was amazing and enlightening.’

‘If you’re trying to find your way in a creative practice that is insistently both-and, in-between, a hybrid endeavor: This is
the conference for you. Always inspiring. Highly recommended.’

A celebration of the first 5 years

To celebrate the Eyeo Festival’s 5th Anniversary we assembled a beautiful book featuring work and thoughts from the folks who’ve graced the stage at Eyeo from 2011-2015. The 250 page softcover book is a nice trip down memory lane and as well as great resource with digestible doses of insight & inspiration from some of the most interesting and successful people in the community.

A limited supply of copies remain for sale. Get one for yourself, your school, or your lab. Book orders are shipped biweekly.



We’re really excited about this. Eyeo recently received funding that allows us to provide several scholarships that will include travel, lodging and a festival ticket. These Inclusion & Diversity Scholarships are made possible with the generous support from the Ford Foundation and Eyeo’s ‘Donate to Diversity’ Donors.
