Kindess. Compassion. Hope. Creativity. Community.

The OYOU ("Own Your Own Universe") is a 501 C3 non-profit community arts center project.

With its home base currently in San Marcos, Texas, it’s a "Get-It-Done" grassroots operation that strives to get music and all things art into the ears and hands of folks that need it most. 

At this time, the OYOU does not have a physical location. We're operating out of a small office while we actively fundraise for the building site! 
The OYOU will one day be a sustainable, solar-powered and fully handicapped-accessible arts center located in the greater San Marcos area featuring multi-sensory gardens and all manner of programs, activities and events open to the entire community. Imagine a venue where anyone — regardless of age or physical ability — can enjoy music, arts, crafts, and shows without the worry of social or mobility issues within the facility. Imagine a place where anyone — regardless of income — can attend inspiring workshops on everything from organic gardening to music lessons. Imagine a safe, nurturing environment where underprivileged or at-risk children can learn firsthand the joy and fullfillment of playing a musical instrument. The OYOU will offer all of this and more.

Although the OYOU is still seeking land on which to build, the dream itself is well on its way to fruition. Fans and venues from all over the country have already pitched in with monetary and instrument donations. In the meantime, the OYOU is a mobile nonprofit on wheels. We're actively seeking opportunities to share its mission across Texas and throughout the United States.

Become a friend of the OYOU and help us stick a shovel in the earth and harvest the dream!

Sing. Dance. Write, Act. Create. Learn. Be inspired! Can you see it? We can — and by helping the OYOU, you can, too!
