RAW:natural born artists, a US-based, multi-faceted independent arts organization, will be launching in Winnipeg, Manitoba on April 3, 2014.
Armed with the mission of connecting artists across genres so that they can grow together, RAW currently showcases independent artists in fashion, music, visual art, film, performing art, photography, hair and makeup, in over 80 cities across the U.S., Australia, U.K and now Canada each month. RAW focuses on providing these artists with the tools and resources needed to inspire and cultivate creativity. Since its conception in 2009, RAW has showcased over 35,000 artists and has hosted over 600 local art-infused events.
After five years of successfully promoting and connecting independent artists in the United States, the organization has put into motion the goal of expanding an already international network to several more creative communities in Canada.
“The launch of RAW Artists in Winnipeg is very exciting and has truly gained recognition in the media’s eye. We are now thrilled to announce the recruitment of Fashion Designer, Lennard Taylor as RAW Winnipeg’s Showcase Director. Lennard has a refreshing and very unique approach to every project he tackles. I have no doubt he is just what RAW Winnipeg needs! His growth progression through past initiatives in building artistic awareness in the City, is truly admirable.” states Cynthia Ballesteros, Executive Director of Canada. The reigns of RAW Winnipeg will be undertaken by Taylor post launch.
