RAW Dallas is one of 80+ city locations for RAW: natural born artists, an international community made up of creative individuals across the globe. The mission of RAW Dallas is to give distinct artists throughout the metroplex, a unified platform to showcase their artistic talents. RAW Dallas was introduced to the city in the summer of 2012, since then RAW Dallas has successfully coordinated nearly 20 eclectic artist showcases in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. With promoting and empowering artists in their first ten years of their careers as the primary focus of RAW Dallas, the local platform provides tools for these artists to effectively market and monetize their craft.

RAW Dallas also provides globally-based professionals with various website tools that allow them to creatively mentor through various outlets, like our educational blogs and v-logs and RAWdio, where artist interviews are aired internationally through the podcast.
