RAW:natural born artists (www.rawartists.org) is an indie arts organization operating in over 70 cities internationally, including New Orleans (RAW: NOLA) and Houston. Each month RAW hand-selects and features approximately 20 local, emerging creatives in one big circus of creativity. These events include fashion, hair, and makeup runway shows, a giant pop-up art gallery, music performances, performing arts, short film showings, and more.
