National Arts Drive: Interactive Fundraiser & Community Experience

RAW: Natural Born Artists, is excited to announce, The National Arts Drive, a local arts fundraiser, and community experience.

On Saturday, June 6, 2020 at 1 pm to 4m pm PST, artists and creatives in every medium are joining together in a massive moment across the country to raise awareness and financial support directly to independent artists. Artists, creatives, and makers are invited to perform, showcase, and display their creativity from front lawns, driveways, balconies, and stoops during the same 3-hour period across cities and towns.

They have joined forces to call on the local community to take a drive through city blocks and suburban streets using an interactive map that will mark the performance and installation locations of participating artists. When drivers approach a location they’ll be able to donate directly to the artist from the safety of their car through a touch-free transfer.

.Join and Support The National Arts Drive Movement!

  1. Artists and creatives register a showcase location to participate.
  2. A showcase map marker is dropped on The National Arts Drive map designating the location of each participating artist.
  3. Community Drivers Must RSVP. On June 6th, 2020, community supporters (“Drivers”) will explore arts showcases in their city.
  4. As Drivers approach showcase map markers, they will have the opportunity to support local artists directly by donation or social media interaction from a safe, and healthy distance.

Please feel free to share this with your creative circle, friends, and family.

Disclaimer: Please double check event information with the event organizer as events can be canceled, details can change after they are added to our calendar, and errors do occur.
