i am so extremely excited to share that our own Hannah and Tricia have been selected for an A-MA-ZING event for RAWartists Des Moines! here is a little bit about what RAW is: [seriously, this is so cool]

RAW:natural born artists is an independent arts organization, for artists, by artists.We’re a community made up of creative individuals across the nation.Our mission is to provide independent artists within the first 10 years of their career with the tools, resources and exposure needed to inspire and cultivate creativity.We welcome all genres of art including independent film, fashion, music, visual art, performing art, hairstylists, makeup artists and more.We encourage the creative success of the many visionaries and storytellers of our generation.RAW currently operates in 54 cities across the United States & Australia and counting …
Our RAW Directors hand-pick and spotlight local artistic talent in film, fashion, music, visual art, hair & makeup artistry, and performance art. With artists from all genres in each showcase, RAW events come together to form an amazing one-night circus of creativity. These showcases occur once a month in each city location (54 showcases a month). Our RAW season runs from February-October and comes to an extravagant end with our indie arts awards show RAWards in Hollywood.
What can you expect when attending a RAW Showcase? You’ll experience an independent film (usually a short, webisode or music video), a fashion show from an up-and-coming local designer, a musical performance, an art gallery featuring several independent visual artists and photographers, and performance art (comedy/dance/fire dancers, you name it…). You’ll get a little taste of everything. Combine all this creativity with drinks, fun, and good company! To partake in the experience, RSVP ($10/ticket) to any of our 54 monthly, city showcases by clicking on the city tab at the top of the homepage!
