1208 is an artist collective comprised of graduates from UArts, Drexel and PAFA who were brought together through their common interests in music, creativity and most importantly, their fondness for skateboarding.
1208 was the sanctuary for a band of creative outsiders striving to live life with rules they would write, challenge and make themselves.
From the now scattered origins of 1208, 5 individuals were selected to take over Minnow - formerly SkateNerd's Minnow - and recreate it as if it were their own, drawing from their creative crypts and experiences in the professional worlds in which they have worked.
