The mission of Day Eight is to empower individuals and communities to participate in the arts through the production, publication, and promotion of creative projects.

According to the United Nations Development Programme, in 2004 there were 1.2 Billion malnourished humans. Even in a world of 1.2 BILLION malnourished humans… ESPECIALLY in a world of 1.2 billion malnourished humans… there is a place for art.

Our name — Day Eight — is a reference to the process of creation. We have the opportunity to begin the world anew every day. Our programming is designed to empower participants’ awareness of choice through performances, classes, workshops, and publications.
