Hi, I'm Sam.
You know, that girl from the video? In May 2020 I dreamt of El Local Collective. The following month I began sharing it with the world. In July our first piece of art was sold and in August we began featuring more locals.
Since then, El Local Collective has helped generate thousands of dollars to artists and entrepreneurs of the Coastal Bend through selling their work and coordinating markets for them to do business in.
Our mission: Get as many people around us to believe in themselves to the fullest extent.
Why? Because we understand that the more we believe in ourselves, the more we become ourselves. The more we learn about people's dreams, the more inspired we are to follow our own.
It's cliché, but true: Anyone can make a difference, just by being themselves.
We're rooting for you.
