Transcript

  • 1. The Raw Arts Festival
  • 2. What was the Raw Arts Festival? • It was dedicated to exhibiting artworks by non-mainstream artists e.g. Outsider, Folk, Raw or Self-taught etc. For five years, the festival exhibited a wide variety of nonmainstream art, such as works created by homeless people, adults with autism and well established Outsider/Raw artists etc.
  • 3. The growth of the festival... • The first Raw Arts Festival (RAF) was held in London in August 2004. • This festival gained a lot of publicity and support. • This made the second festival easier to book.
  • 4. The London RAF’s • The first RAF exhibited 65 artists/organisations from 9 different countries • The second RAF exhibited 95 artists/organisations from 12 different countries • Both floors of the massive Candid Arts Trust space were completely full. • The private views for both events were extremely well attended
  • 5. New York Arts Magazine • I worked with the NY Arts magazine to coorganise RAF 2006 in Spain and RAF 2007 in New York. • By this time, the festival had received publicity worldwide…
  • 6. In total… …I created and directed five RAF’s: •RAF 2004 was held at the Candid Arts Trust, London, UK •RAF 2005 was held at the Candid Arts Trust, London, UK •RAF 2006 was held at Color Elefante, Valencia, Spain •RAF 2007 was held at the Carrozzini von Buhler Gallery, New York, USA •RAF 2008 was held at the Infusion Gallery, Los Angeles, USA
  • 7. The statistics prove… • The second RAF was ‘London's largest and best International exhibition of self-taught art mounted to date’. • This was widely quoted in the press. • The RAF is one of the only non-mainstream festivals to be truly international • I am not aware of any other non-mainstream festival that has had the same impact.
  • 8. Widespread international acclaim • The RAF succeeded in gaining a vast quantity of publicity from publications world-wide including: – – – – – – – – Art Fairs International The Independent Los Angeles Times Metro Raw Vision The Times Yahoo news And many others...
  • 9. The RAF provided... • non-mainstream artists an opportunity to be recognised as uniquely talented creative individuals with an extraordinary gift • a safe haven for vulnerable people to be themselves & meet others with similar values • opportunities for artists and organisations to do some interesting outreach work etc • artists opportunities for recognition
