After eight years of running youth programs, mentoring and workshops, One Vision Production have relocated their recording studio, office and creative hub to 1/19-21 Centennial Circuit, just around the corner, in the Byron Arts & Industry Estate.

Jeanne Harper from One Vision Production told The Echo that, in that time, hundreds of young people in the Byron Shire learned how to DJ, mix, scratch and play tunes for their peers in a safe, supervised youth space.

The new premises will be home to projects including the long-running Music for Change youth hip hop and video productions workshops. A new transformative mental wellness app, MPOWER PRO, is also in the pipeline, and due to launch later this year.

One Vision Production founding Director and CEO, Mark Robertson, said the app will include video content and classes from renowned musicians, personal development leaders, health experts and local celebrities.

Also included is the Rap Recorder feature, ‘which will allow users to record and share their own music on the App’.

He adds, ‘One Vision is a fully accredited charity, running for 17 years; we have DGR tax deductibility and are a not-for-profit organisation’.
