RAW Newcastle launch CURRENT on Thursday 27 November 2014
CURRENT will bring together 30+ local emerging artists spanning fashion, music, visual and performing arts, music and more for a one night extravaganza at The Great Northern Hotel in Newcastle. This will be the last RAW Newcastle showcase of the 2014 season and we are celebrating with a huge grand finale showcase.
Showcase Director Timothy Jackson is excited to once again be showcasing some of the city’s best emerging talent in front of hundreds of captivated patrons.
“Our most recent show at the Great Northern Hotel was a brilliant success. Hundreds of people came to the event and there was not a single big name ‘established’ artist on the bill. Newcastle locals are clearly excited about the wealth of homegrown talent in their own city.”
“There is a new landscape for artists today. Traditional forums and paths for showcasing art have dried up or are no longer proving as effective. RAW is giving emerging artists a platform from which to launch their creative careers in a world where everyone is vying for attention.”
“We hope to give a voice to emerging artists in Newcastle from all creative backgrounds. RAW is not only about art, but also about community, and we hope to continue to build and add to that here in Newcastle.”
WHAT A one night emerging arts showcase featuring 30 of Newcastle’s best emerging talent spanning genres such as fashion, music, visual and performing arts, and photography.
