Who We Are

Hydra Arts was founded in 2019 by Peter McMaster who has since enjoyed sharing the resources and projects of Hydra with numerous artists and organisations to create exciting and meaningful opportunities and art works. Thinking about Hydra as more of a collective it embraces collaboration as foundational to its identity. Ideas, approaches and outcomes are all dependent on the co-creation of the people and communities it works with on all its projects.

In this collective model and from project to project, roles and responsibilities shift about between personnel whether that is across the roles of producing, artistic directorship, collaborating, advising, performing etc. In this model, Hydra resists pigeon holing its collaborators and directors into sole roles, and enjoys the experience of learning in different positions. 

 

 Hydra would like to thank and honour all the artists, organisations, participants and individuals whom it has worked with to date including regular collaborators Nic Green, Rachel O'Neill, Joe Dalton, Craig McCorquadale, Lottie Barker and the Old Kilpatrick Players, as well as Steven Anderson, Martin O'Connor,  Hanna Tuulikki, Lesley Howard, Oli Higham, Lucy Duncombe, West Dunbartonshire Council, Clifftop Projects, The Phoenix Centre, OKFP, Lydia Honeybone, Action Old Kilpatrick, Amy Gear, Ruiairidh ODonnovan, Simon Whitehead and many many more.
