On Friday, 17th July GLIMPSE will bring together 30 local emerging artists spanning fashion, music, visual and performing arts, music and more for a one-night extravaganza at the Belconnen Arts Centre. GLIMPSE is the fourth of six emerging arts showcases to be run by RAW Canberra in 2015 and this showcase is packed wall to wall with Canberra’s best-emerging creatives.
Showcase Director Kristen Wehlow is thrilled to be bringing you another group of Canberra’s best emerging talent at the upcoming GLIMPSE 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.”
Tickets are $20 +bf or $25 at the door.
