You can either use one master and seven slaves or implement a more complex multi-master scheme. With multi-master,
each peer can actively start communication, but arbitration of conflicting bus accesses is required. So the software effort is increasing.

Connect all SDA and SCL pins respectively and place pull-up resistors for both nodes. Assign unique device addresses.
