On Friday, 21st August, ‘Paramount’ will bring together 30 plus local emerging artists spanning fashion, music, visual and performing arts, music and more for a one night extravaganza at the The Producers. Paramount is the fourth of six emerging arts showcases to be run by RAW Adelaide in 2015 and this showcase is packed wall to wall with Adelaide’s best emerging creatives.
Showcase Director Sam Meathrel is thrilled to be bringing you another group of Adelaide’s best emerging talent at the upcoming Paramount showcase.
“RAW embraces independence and artists who want to take their creative careers into their own hands. In the current climate where traditional funding of the arts through the government is a dwindling resource, it is vital more than ever for artists to take hold and mould their future.”
“Art belongs to the people and it holds a mirror to who we are today. It shouldn’t be locked in galleries and private collections, it should be thrown open to everyone, embraced, talked about widely and passionately by people of all walks of life. Through art we can discover who we are, look at where we have come from and where we should be going, and there is no better place to do that than at a RAW showcase.”
“Being involved with emerging artists is thrilling. These incredible creatives are on the verge of blossoming into the spectacular butterflies of the creative world and we get to be involved with where it all started.”
RAW is an independent arts organisation, for artists, by artists and their mission is to provide independent artists of all creative genres, with the tools, resources and exposure needed to inspire and cultivate creativity. They work by connecting artists with one another so that they might grow together. With 60+ host events across the U.S., Australia, Canada and the U.K, they also work to showcase their artists online.
