We’re not a white wall gallery ... or Mercedes Benz Fashion Week -- nor are we trying to be. RAW was built upon the belief that all creatives should have the chance to thrive. We’re not art snobs. We work to bring art to the people by taking a snapshot of the local creative culture while promoting the independent artists working in these communities. We’re independent artists ourselves. We create, we produce, we make music, we make art. We’re young professionals who work hard and play hard. We are RAW ... for artists, by artists.

We love the organization we’ve worked so hard to build and are always ecstatic to add to our ever-growing family!

Supporting local art for over a decade

RAW:natural born artists (or RAW Artists for short) is an international, independent arts organization focused on aiding independent artists by giving them the tools, resources, education and exposure they’ll need to propel forward in their creative careers. Serving in 70 cities worldwide (and counting), we have been fulfilling our mission by hand-picking and spotlighting artists in showcase events since 2009.

We bring art to people, and people to art. Not solely through our showcases, but also by way of our online community. Here artists can connect with each other, self-educate and share their current works.

RAW is a unique organization because we don’t focus on just one area of creativity. Instead, RAW encapsulates 10 different creative categories: film, fashion, music, visual art, performing art, beauty, accessories, photography, craft, and technology. Our alternative platform provides an opportunity for emerging creatives to be seen, heard and loved both on and offline.
