Story added 2nd Mar 2020


In light of the current Covid-19 status and in the interest of the health and wellbeing of our community we will sadly not be running this event. We realise that this will be disappointing, however, we hope that you understand why we have taken this decision.


RAW22 - City Lit Art & Design Foundation Exhibition 2020

An exhibition showcasing work by 22 artists, designers and makers as they conclude their year of intensive creative study on the Foundation Diploma in Art and Design at City Lit.

RAW22 presents an array of contemporary work that reflects each exhibitor’s individual interests, passions and raw creative talent. With the use of a wide range of media from textiles, sculpture and ceramics, to drawing, painting, printmaking, photography and digital installation the group have produced a diverse, fresh array of work showing their personal artistic journey.

Hear from Joanna Spilman, and her transformation from Project Management to Fine Art, who is exhibiting scuba-diving inspired works at RAW22.
