The art collective RAW: natural born artists is presenting a one-night emerging arts showcase featuring 30-plus of Byron Bay’s best emerging talent spanning genres such as fashion, music, visual and performing arts, and photography during March.

Judging by the group’s previous work, Signature, as the event has been dubbed, will be quirky, diverse and not to be missed.

It is sure to include the hottest line-up of artists you’ve never heard of – all at Byron Bay Brewery on Friday, March 11, from 7.30pm.

Pictured above are a range of artists who have appeared at previous Byron RAW events.

RAW says its mission is to ‘provide independent artists of all creative genres, with the tools, resources and exposure needed to inspire and cultivate creativity’.

RAW connects artists with one another so that they might grow together. It hosts events in 60+ cities across the US, Australia, Canada and the UK and also showcases artists online via www.RAWartists.org.

Tickets for the Signature event are $20 (+bf) and are available through www.RAWartists.org/byronbay/signature or $25 on the door.


Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.


  1. It’s a shame RAW requires that each participating artist will commit to selling 20 tickets.. Would be much nicer and easier if everyone was doing what they are good at – RAW organising their events, including selling the tickets, and artists focusing on the art, instead of running like headless chickens trying to sell tickets..
