What is

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.

Our Mission

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.

Artist Testimonials

“I had an amazing time! I was so honored to just be in a space with such creative minds. This show opened a new lane for me as a hairstylist and I will be forever grateful. I would love to work with RAW again. I love what you guys do it's so essential in this industry. Thank you so much!”
- Rosalyn Warren // Washington DC // VERSE
“My partner (Stephanie) and I had such an incredible experience at our first RAW event. The night was insane (in a good way), sold a ton of accessories, and collected almost 100 email addresses. We sold about $1200 in jewelry and almost sold out! We couldn't be more happy with the entire experience and can't wait to do another showcase!”
- KaraLyn Street // Detroit // FIXATE
“Thanks so much for this opportunity! The RAW showcase helped me realize my potential as a photographer, and was great practice for showing my work at future festivals/events. I don't think I've ever been in a room full of such diverse talent before, but it was inspiring. I'm honored to have been a part of it all!”e happy with the entire experience and can't wait to do another showcase!”
- Jessica Wright // New Orleans // VERSE
“This experience really helped me in so many ways along with making me feel supported by the community and other artists. The intentions of the RAW community are clear that they want to support every artist and help them shine in an industry otherwise tough to get started in. I am so thankful to my director and everyone who helped put this on!”
