The National Arts Drive | RAW Artists - RAW: natural born artists - Los Angeles

Over the past few months, we have watched in disbelief as every opportunity to perform, showcase, or display in real life has vanished for the foreseeable future. The creative community as a whole is not only suffering job loss, but lost opportunities to be seen, heard, and supported financially. As a creative events platform, we're wounded too, but these are not the times to roll over and give up! These are the times to stand firm in your values and act in service with the resources you have available to you.Today we are super excited to announce, The National Arts Drive, a local arts fundraiser and community experience.On Saturday, June 6, 2020, we’re calling all artists in every creative medium (RAW Artists or not) to showcase from their front lawns, driveways, balconies, stoops or studios. We’re inviting the community at-large to take a drive and experience the creative culture living in their own neighborhood. The driving experience will be paired with a mobile website that contains an interactive map. As "Drivers" approach an installation or performance they can donate directly to the artist, follow them on social media, and/or visit their online shop or website (all from a safe and healthy distance). This is completely free to artists and community Drivers.We're calling on the creative community to join together across borders and boundaries and mediums to speak up and show just how powerful the arts are, together. And we're calling on the community-at-large to stand for the notion that supporting and incubating our creative culture is a necessary and important part of preserving it.Artists, Join the Movement and drop your map marker @ www.NationalArtsDrive.comCommunity Drivers, RSVP at www.NationalArtsDrive.comPlease feel free to share, re-post, and/or tag creative your creative circle.We hope you'll join us to Support Local Art.#NationalArtsDrive #RAWartists #SupportLocalArt
