After forming in Australia in 2012, Raw has finally made its way to Adelaide. To celebrate, a launch party was held at The Producers Hotel in the Adelaide CBD, showcasing 30 natural born artists from across visual arts, fashion, music, performing arts and more. Stick all of these artists into one room and what do you get? A wondrous night full of culture and inspiration: a real treat for all the senses.
Joy Sparkes, director of Raw Adelaide, said the launch would be one of many future opportunities for local creatives.
“Adelaide is home to some incredibly talented artists from all fields of art; I am so excited to be able to allow emerging creatives the opportunity to step up and expose their amazing talents at an all-encompassing art extravaganza” she said
“This will be the first of three showcases this year in Adelaide and we are expecting it to go off with a bang. We have put together a fantastic line up of Adelaide creative talent that we think is going to really impress and excite the audience”
The main aim was to provide independent local artists from all different varieties of genres with the opportunity for exposure to cultivate their creativity.
The night was filled with quirky characters, astounding works of art, and a runway made out of chocolate shavings (yes, you heard right). With a whole new landscape, artists now are able to showcase their works and creative passion, and everyone wanted a piece!
