98B conceptualizes, hosts and takes part in various events to discover and fortify links with other creative individuals, groups, organizations and networks, to experiment on diverse ways of working together and to foster a creative community.


Kitchen

The KITCHEN acts as the physical area where discussions and discourses happen over a meal. Activities around this nook are conceptualized to make way for a more intimate sharing of food for the stomach and the soul. Metaphorically, ideas are cooked and savored here.

FUTURE MARKET

It is a bazaar, garage sale, thrift shop, black market and meeting place. Artists, craft makers, designers and hoarders sell their wares: from artworks, limited edition or hand-made clothes, bags, jewelry, accessories, toys, zines, CDs, stickers, second-hand, vintage to unwanted things. It is our response to consumerism and mass-production.  The Future Market aims to put the soul and spirit within the commercial exercise. Moreover, supporting this program enables creative individuals and artists to sustain their art practice. The Future Market is a bazaar, garage sale, thrift shop, black market and meeting place.
