To provide independent artists within the first 10 years of their creative career with the tools, resources and exposure needed to inspire and cultivate creativity. RAW ventures to provide the platform for these artists to be seen,heard, and loved.
RAW showcases indie talent in visual art, film, fashion design, music, performance art, hair and makeup artistry, and photography.
RAW is a fun and alternative way for artists to showcase both to their local community and the world-at-large.
We are not your average art show. We are loud, colorful, creative, and all about our artists. We are RAW.
RAW currently operates in over 60 cities across the United States, Australia, Canada and the UK!
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Every other month, our RAW Directors in cities across the world hand-pick and spotlight local artistic talent in visual art, fashion design, film,music, performance art, hair & makeup artistry, and photography through local eclectic RAW events. With artists from all genres in each showcase, RAW events come together to form an amazing one-night circus of creativity.
What can you expect when attending a RAW Showcase? You'll experience an independent film screening (usually a short, webisode or music video), a pop-up gallery featuring several independent visual artists and photographers, fashion shows from up-and-coming local designers, live musical performances, vendor booths featuring local artisans and accessories designers, and live performance art. You'll get a little taste of everything. Combine all this creativity with drinks, fun, and good company!
