ArtBridges is a unique, emerging and free Canada-wide hub for community-engaged arts initiatives that connects people interested or active in community-engaged arts across Canada.
ArtBridges’ seeks to nurture community-engaged arts nationwide. We imagine better access to arts and art-making across Canada, particularly for people living in remote, under-resourced and under-serviced communities.
We’ve created our own word to describe what we do – ArtBridging: [ahrt-brij-ing] verb.
We define ArtBridging as
Creating networks and collaborations between community arts projects, programs, organizations and resources with the outcome being positive benefits to Canadian communities.
