Artify is a dynamic, national award-winning youth leadership conference that will bring youth (ages 13-19) from across Austin together in the Summer of 2019 to demonstrate how the fine arts can be used as a pathway for wellness and creating community change. In addition, Artify seeks to:

  1. Create a sense of connection and belonging.

  2. Demonstrate how the fine arts support wellness and community change.

  3. Create space and place for youth to craft messages of change.

  4. Equip youth with new knowledge and skills in the fine arts.

This two and a half day event will include 60 fine arts clinics, six exceptional keynote speakers, and a youth performance night that will feature local youth talent.

This event would not be possible without your support. This year, we will partner with an estimated 100 fine arts organizations and business in the community to provide Artify Austin free of charge to an estimated 250 youth.

We believe in the power of the fine arts to change lives and communities. More than a conference, Artify is a starting point for communities to engage in conversations about the issues that matter to young people. 

Please be on the lookout for more information about Artify in the coming weeks. If you have questions or are interested in volunteering for this event, please contact us at (512) 232-9673 or email us at
