8-Ball in Milano
Support your community, get involved!
8-Ball Community is moving from NYC to Milan for a week full of events (March 19–24) and will engage with artists and activists from the local scene.
The program will be hosted by NFQ space—the brand new space by NERO and FABIO QUARANTA, opening its doors to the public for the first time on this occasion—and will includes talks, workshops, concerts, exhibitions and performances, focusing every day on a different theme, with the participation of several personalities, no profit associations and artists whose activities are closely related to 8-Ball’s view.
Beside the radio station, a TV studio will be set up for free public usage, plus a small library with a selection of independent magazines. All the events will be free and open to the public and will be live broadcasted on both 8-Ball and NERO radio and tv channels.
8-Ball Community Inc. is an independent nonprofit organization that nurtures and supports a community of artists through free, open-access platforms and events. 8-Ball provides virtual and physical meeting sites for people of all ages, gender and backgrounds. Its mission is to generate collaborative and educational exchange through public access television and radio stations, an imprint, a self publishing fair, a public library, an internship program, a residency and series of workshops in art-related trades. 8-Ball Community operates free of elitism and is governed by its participants.
“Everyone is welcome.
8-Ball is a group effort.
We constantly expand our community.
We have no elitism.
We have no borders.
We work against privileges based on race, religion, sex, class or ability.
We are looking for no profit.
We do not have any association with brands.
We are against the competitive environment of the capitalistic world.
We believe the process is more important than the end result.
We want to inspire others to make even better projects.
We are here to learn from each other.
We want to help maintain the value of physical things in a virtual society.”
