MAKS students shall be launching their RAW Magazine tomorrow at the University Quadrangle between 12pm and 4pm. Aside from the physical publication, the RAW team has been embarking on several experiential projects and sharing their findings on tellingraw.com.
In a press release, the RAW team said that “now is the best time to be alive. Though the threats of nuclear bombing and resurgence of diseases such as Measles have us doubting this claim, the world nowadays is the wealthiest and most advanced it has ever been. And that is a fact. Nowadays, the internet, as well as globalization, have made it possible for people to achieve whatever they set their mind to … RAW is about reconnecting with the human element and stripping events back to reveal their true essence - the good, the bad and the ugly.”
Twenty-five University of Malta students who pertaining to the Faculty of Media and Knowledge Sciences was split into four teams last February - with each group signing up to handle individual responsibilities. “The RAW team designed the identity of the magazine from its roots, set the tone of the identity, managed its social media presence and established contacts in the industry.”
A number of photo projects and articles were based on user submissions making RAW a collaboration between the audience and the team itself. “Everyone working on RAW has had the chance to meet people in the industry; radio hosts, newsagents, prominent business leaders as well as some of the most influential speakers on the island.”
