The OYOU ("Own Your Own Universe") is a community arts center project based out of Hays County, Texas. With roots in San Marcos, 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.
The OYOU will one day be a sustainable, solar-powered and fully handicapped-accessible arts center featuring therapeutic 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 in Hays County 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, and the OYOU is currently a
mobile nonprofit on wheels, actively seeking opportunities to share its mission at selective events across Texas and throughout the United States.
Become a friend of the OYOU and help us turn this dream into a reality we can all share in. Sing. Dance. Write, Act. Create. Learn. Be inspired! Can you see it? We can — and by helping the OYOU, you can, too!
