RAW Pittsburgh: Call For Artists
RAW: Natural Born Artists is coming to Pittsburgh, and they are seeking artists to participate in the monthly artist showcases. The national organization hosts monthly events in 54 cities nationwide, and Pittsburgh is one of the newest cities to join the list. RAW’s mission is to ‘provide independent artists of all creative genres with the tools, resources, and exposure needed to inspire and cultivate creativity.’ Each event will feature at least 20 different handpicked creatives in the fields of visual art, film, fashion, music, hair & makeup artistry, photography, modeling and performing art. The Pittsburgh RAW showcases will take place the first Thursday of each month at Cavo in the Strip District, starting in February. NakYouOut is excited to be a media partner of the series!
Participating in RAW provides several benefits for the artists. In addition to the local exposure, participating artists are featured on the national website and its social media sites, they receive a media kit with a photo shoot and video interview, they’re given the opportunity to perform at another RAW event in a different city, and they become a part of the RAW network. The RAW community offers professional consultation, career resources, networking and booking opportunities for all of its artists. Participants are also eligible to be a part of the annual national awards ceremony to compete for the title of best of their craft at the RAWards, and win a selection of career-building prizes.
If you are a Pittsburgh artist focused on any of these disciplines, you are encouraged to become involved with one of the 2013 showcases. The deadline for the next event is quickly approaching, and spots fill up quickly, so contact the RAW Pittsburgh team at Pittsburgh@RAWartists.org today and stay tuned for more details about the first RAW Pittsburgh event coming up on February 7th at Cavo.
