Tap the Hydrant. Leave Your Mark.



A youth-led platform that provides opportunities to network, showcase, and inspire through arts of all kinds from local to global scale.

Conceived for and by young creatives, the Hydrant is a youth think tank and platform that amplifies the voices, stories, and impact of emerging leaders in the arts community. Acting as a hub, The Hydrant connects young creators to one another, to mentors, and audiences. It provides inspiration, opportunities, resources, and connections to local organizations active on issues most important to young people, their families, and communities.

This is only the beginning. Let's tap the Hydrant together.
