On Thursday, 5th February PRESENT will bring together 30+ local emerging artists spanning fashion, music, visual and performing arts, music and more for a one night extravaganza at the The Great Northern Hotel. PRESENT is the first of six emerging arts showcases to be run by RAW Newcastle in 2015 and this first showcase is packed wall to wall with Newcastle’s best emerging creatives.

Showcase Director Timothy Jackson can’t wait to launch the 2015 RAW showcases with VISIONARY.

“A new year always inspires those creatives who have been hiding in the shadows to give their creative talents a chance to shine. As a result VISIONARY has drawn together some truly wonderful artists who can’t wait to share their work with you.”

“We can no longer rely on governments to fully support the arts and need to draw on our local communities to help provide that platform. We are trying to harness that community power here at RAW and make some changes to the way people support creatives in their communities”

“We have been lucky enough to play a small part in helping local artists move to the next level in their creative careers. We get so much joy out of seeing an artist who has showcased as part of the RAW family go on to bigger and better things.”

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.
