Welcome to the inaugural The Bridge: A Festival of Ideas. This annual event invites audiences to go deeper, to engage in the issues of our time. This year, we explore how art moves the conversation forward around reconciliation.
The Bridge is an all-access event. Our mission is to share this conversation with as many people as we can and ignite a sense of community around these ideas. Every offering is free and we invite you to help spread the word and join us at the festival.
