RAW is an independent organisation connecting artists all over the world. It's run by artists, it's for artists and it now has branches in more than 60 nations. Creatives of all types are invited to get on board — including painters, sculptors, filmmakers, writers, actors, dancers, musicians and the rest.
On July 24, RAW Sydney will host GLIMPSE, an event at Manning Bar, Sydney University. When we say event, we basically mean a mini-festival. Each RAW extravaganza features a handpicked selection of talents. So, in one night, for one ticket price, under one proof, you get film screenings, fashion shows, exhibitions, gigs, performance art, hairstylists and make-up artists.
The upcoming shindig will feature the work of fashion designers Georgia Wolff and Marky Dong (who lists his influences as Lady Gaga and his mum), artists Ruby&Wolf and Natalie Verriest, photographer Teigan Blackshaw, filmmakers Bradley Murnane and Richard Clifford, and loads more.
To bring a dash of glamour to the occasion, you're asked to dress cocktail-style and bring along some cash to splash at the onsite cocktail bar.
