WHAT IS RAW? RAW is a multi-faceted arts showcase that handpicks and spotlights talent from various sectors within the artistic realm: film, fashion, music, visual art, hair design, makeup artistry, modeling, DJing, photography and performance art. The RAW season runs from February to October, hosting 36 events in Los Angeles, Fullerton, Long Beach and Santa Monica.

Raw provides a platform for independent artists in Southern California to be seen, heard, and loved. RAW executes this through two main avenues: grassroots arts showcases which spotlight one artist in each of the categories, as well as through the exclusive web community. 

All RAW events are planned, promoted and produced eco-friendly

  • RAW purchases Carbon Offsets annually ( to cancel any carbon pollution from guests attending our events (don't worry, we've got you covered!)
  • RAW never prints a flyer.  All of our promotion is executed through online promotions, text messaging, and email.
  • When RAW does have to print, we print on recycled paper only.
  • . hosts the website, email server, and data files on 100% Solar Powered Energy provided by


WHAT IS GREEN WAVE? GREEN WAVE is a dynamic, eco-awareness 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded and run by Green Girl Guru, Janine Johnson.  GREEN WAVE is dedicated to establishing precedents for change and  redefining activism.  GREEN WAVE was conceived in 2006 and directly inspired by Gandhi's iconic quote "You must be the change you wish to see in the world".  The GREEN WAVE mission is to inspire waves of change by creating living examples focused on living consciously, peacefully, and harmoniously with the environment and with each other for the conscious well being of our planet. 
GREEN WAVE believes we can teach through example  to lead our future generations to a sustainable and harmonious future. GREEN WAVE serves like a non-profit life coach to both individuals as well as businesses to assist in strategies of not only how to incorporate sustainability (always starting with personal mindfulness) into daily activities and practices but how to inspire others to do the same. 
Although GREEN WAVE has its own charity projects, (i.e. sending kids to school, providing eco-education, saving sea turtles, forming an electronic music alliance, and assisting in the funding of eco-developments) GREEN WAVE can also collaborate with clients to create awareness initiatives, events, campaigns,
