RAW Coffee Company announces their first 2021 Call for Artists, for the RAW Gallery Wall. The company are launching a curated show that will run for 2 months at a time, based on a theme. At RAW, art and community are the core beliefs that easily flow with the café’s aesthetic. The first exhibition will run from 7 April 2021 – 7 June 2021 and the theme for the exhibition is Sustainable Material: Paper.
Sustainability in coffee considers three vital elements: People, Planet, and Profit. Simply put, it means acting responsibly in all areas of the coffee supply chain. It’s core to who we are and how we conduct ourselves.
Artists are encouraged to either work with paper as a medium OR use paper in a creative 2D way OR as subject matter. At this time, only 2D artwork for this show in formats: A0, A1, A2 or A3, maximum 5 pieces per artist are accepted. Artwork will be selected and curated for the exhibition by RAW’s team of talented creatives and creative director.
Kim Thompson, Founder and CEO stated “At RAW we value how we communicate and educate our customer in those pillars we strongly believe in: Local, Ethical and Direct. Each of these pillars have strong core values which we would like to express through the use of art and at the same time provide a platform for artists, who we want to support in difficult times.”
