Co-Founder, IMVisible Newark
Yeimy Gamez Castillo is a multidisciplinary queer immigrant artist born in Honduras and raised in Newark. She is a singer/songwriter, music producer, and event curator with activist roots as a community organizer. She co-founded in 2018 with Dr. Jennifer Bucalo and Layqa Nuna Yawar, IMVisible, which is a collective of Newark-based artists who amplify migrant voices in the city of Newark using art, advocacy, and education with a holistic approach. IMVisible has been selected by the Newark Artists Collaborative to create a temporary facade installation at the FOCUS Hispanic Center for Community. The development of this artwork will be driven by open discussions with the undocumented and immigrant communities. Her latest self-produced single, Sueño Mojado tells the story of forbidden undocumented love and is available on all streaming platforms.
