From the website:
“The Roots Factory is a grass-roots organization that was founded by local San Diego artists Bob Green & Ana Brown. The Roots Factory is a conscious screen printing shop. We host regular screen printing classes and workshops. We also have an intern program, where people get on the job training running a multi purpose art space…
The Mission of the The Roots Factory is to foster a space that promotes global consciousness through a message of peace, protest and collectivity by employing a provocative blend of cultural imagery and music. Creating logos, t-shirt designs, posters, website design, custom printing, online / guerrilla marketing, and event planning, interactive art workshops…
The Roots Factory also operates as a gallery and musical performance arts center. We showcase local and international, artists and musicians. Our purpose is to promote culture, tolerance, self-empowerment and awareness. We host regular events where we invite the community to take part in events that combine art & music within a peaceful family setting.”
