On Thursday, 11th June SPLENDOUR 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.
SPLENDOUR is the third of six emerging arts showcases to be run by RAW Newcastle in 2015 and this showcase is packed wall to wall with Newcastle’s best emerging creatives.
Showcase Director Timothy Jackson is thrilled to be bringing you another group of Newcastle’s best emerging talent at the upcoming SPLENDOUR showcase.
“Art and creative expression have a tradition of holding a mirror to society. At RAW showcases you get an incredible picture of the world around us conveyed through a myriad of mediums and a diversity of cultural and sociological points of view.”
“So many emerging creatives feel like a square peg in a round hole. Their artistic endeavours don’t fit into the boxes institutionalised art has laid and so they struggle to find value in what they do. RAW doesn’t lay out boundaries for what defines art, fashion or music. We believe strongly in freedom of expression, diversity of mediums and a place where the fringe is at the forefront.”
“When is the last time you went to an art show where there was a line up to get in? RAW showcases are aiming to bring the talents of emerging creatives out of their segmented boxes and into the spotlight with crowds of admirers where they belong.”
