Description:

8 to CREATE is a Registered Student Organization at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

8 to CREATE is an art event in which 8 artists have 8 hours to create 8 drawings.

The events are open to the public to observe, engage, and participate in the creative process. All artwork is temporary; no artwork is sold.

The primary goal of 8 to CREATE is to provide an opportunity for students to gain professional art and design experience and to engage in the Champaign-Urbana community.

Students are involved in all aspects of planning the event in order to gain practical experience. Members contribute their creative skills into real-life applications as well as learn from each other. Members also have the opportunity to network with professionals and organizations in the Champaign-Urbana community.

8 to CREATE has two secondary goals:

  • to make the typically private process of creating artwork accessible and open to the public for observation, engagement, and participation; and
  • to break down institutional and social hierarchies by bringing together a mix of artists from a variety of experiences and affiliations in one creative space.
