Celebrating the youth of the Byron Shire and beyond by creating social change through music and youth empowerment, One Vision Productions have been working with young people for 15 years.
One Vision Productions recently set up a Creative Hub as a permanent base in the Byron Arts and Industry Estate and have begun a crowdfunding campaign to fund it here.
‘At the moment the Hub is unfunded; we need support from the community to continue these projects that are literally changing the lives of vulnerable young people in our region,’ said founding director, Mark Robertson.
Every Friday kids from seven upwards can learn to produce, DJ and enjoy other activities free at the Creative Hub, 5–8pm, 4/10 Wollongbar street, Byron Bay Arts and Industry Estate.
‘What we’re doing is offering young people a space where they can be inspired to create, explore their potential and be met with unlimited opportunity,’ said Mark.
‘We’ve got around 40 kids from seven to 25 who come.’
One Vision Productions work in community centres, schools and youth organisations providing mentoring, music tuition, film, street-art and lyric-writing workshops among others.
They recently had a hugely successful music video they did with indigenous students from Kingscliff High School that went viral gaining 56,000 hits in just three days. You can check it out on the One Vision Productions Facebook page.
