Crossing Bridges is an interactive multidisciplinary collaboration among the arts community, social service agencies and the communities they serve. Local artists and art therapists deliver high-quality arts workshops to children, youth, adults and seniors facing challenges. Since it began in 2013, Crossing Bridges has provided individuals living in at-risk / in-crisis situations the chance to explore their creativity and build their self-confidence in a supportive environment. The program employs local artists and art therapists, giving them the opportunity to develop arts workshops that will advance participants’ personal and social development. Art changes lives.

Have you previously had Crossing Bridges workshops or other arts workshops in your agency? (arts includes visual arts, dance, theatre, photography, music, etc)
Does your agency have space that would be appropriate for arts workshops?
Is there access to a sink and water?
What would be your preference for timing of workshops for 2020/2021 year?
Agencies are expected to have a staff person on site at each workshop in its entirety. Do you have sufficient staff to meet this requirement?
After an initial trial period, can your agency make a financial contribution towards these workshops?
(Note: we realize not all agencies are able to contribute, but the sharing of costs whenever possible enables us to extend the duration of this program and reach more centres and participants. Every bit helps!)
