Local artist nonprofit organization to inspire artist

Nonprofit Organizations Visionheir, the Collective movement, and local artists like Jay Roxx support and inspire the dreams of local artists

EL CENTRO, Calif. (KYMA, KECY) - Local non-profit organizations and artists are coming together to support and inspire others in the imperial valley by opening a "Dream center".

The center would help train inspire and mentor local artists throughout their journey.

Non-profit organizations like Visionheir, the collective movement, and local artist Jay Roxxx want to show artists how they can be successful.

“The dream center what is going to be a hub for the local artist we are planning to open up a recording studio, we are planning to set up a place where they can do photography and they can do their photoshoots and don't have to go to LA to find that recording studio we want to do this locally," said Octavio Bañaga, Producer and creator of artist showcase.

Growing up wanting to be an artist they say it was difficult to dream big in the valley.

“Especially for a vallero... I came from the valley. I knew how hard... I grew up in the HIP-HOP scene... I knew when it came down to us small people but when we came into the scene with the bigger people with the bigger cities we blew it up just as big,” said Bañaga.

Growing up in El Centro, Jay Roxxx had the opportunity to sign with nasty boy records in 2021. But investing in this center can be beneficial.

“I think it will be dope I just want to show people that it is important because than you do have those kids that want to leave imperial or they aren’t good enough because they are from here... there is a lack of motivation of living here,” said Jay Roxxx.

The organizations and Jay Roxxx will have the event IV Artist Showcase, this Saturday in Brawley. They will be showcasing the art of local artists.
