AboutRAW London stems from the international arts phenomenon RAW: natural born artists, an independent arts organisation, with a mission to support and spotlight emerging artists within the first 10 years of their career through every other month Showcase Festivals. RAW London has been presenting the work of London's most exciting creatives since September 2013 celebrating the vibrant cultural capital of the city, and each Showcase Festival is a unique opportunity for the public to discover underground talent hand-selected to be delight and entertain, in a pop-up art gallery, design stalls, catwalk shows, live music and art performances, film screenings, and hair and makeup artistry!
RAW London's next Showcase Festival COMMUNIQUà will be taking place on 3rd July at 93 Feet East on Brick Lane. The first RAW London summer festival includes a plein-air pop up art gallery; a design gallery featuring textile artists, jewellery designers, and accessories designers; 5 catwalk shows; a film screening; 2 live music acts; and an audience-participation performance! Comedian and presenter Amy Bee Stings will be hosting the Showcase Festival and DJ Usul will also be playing at the after-party!
The Showcase Festivals pack in a vast array of activity and artists including: photographers, painters, sculptors, illustrators, jewellery designers, accessories designers, fashion designers, hair and makeup artists, filmmakers, musicians, dancers, performance artists, rappers, comedians, models, djs, and more!
To keep audiences on the edge of their toes each event is presented by a talented host and finished by an after party featuring an up and coming DJ! Visitors can be inspired by the fashion on show, amuse their ears from the live acts, quench their thirst at the bar, tap their toes on the dance floor, and lighten their wallets by investing in art and jewellery designs. There's something for everyone!
