8 to Create, a Registered Student Organization at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, was started in April 2014. The non-profit organization works all year to coordinate and organize their main event by the same name.

8 to Create is a live art event in which 8 artists have 8 hours to create 8 artworks.

The event is open to the public to observe, engage, and participate in the creative process.

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.

8 to Create is proud to announce they officially became a non-profit in 2019!
