Hope Bridges Society is an organization in the Strathmore & Wheatland County region that works to change hearts and minds through arts-based programming. We use the universal language of the arts to build connections and overcome segregation.
Our Society was formed because there was a need to bring those who felt isolated (seniors, adults, those with special needs and anyone perceived as different) into community.
Hope Bridges uses arts as a foundation for everything we do – where there is no right or wrong and where we are all uniquely valued for the creative gifts we possess.
There are three ways that we accomplish our vision:
- We offer the right programming – accessible arts workshops for adults where everyone is welcome, discrimination is not tolerated and we all grow through participation.
- We gather like minded people and organizations to help us grow our vision ensuring inclusivity is at the core.
- We continue learning and share our knowledge – it is through dialogue, mentorship and modeling that we can change minds and open hearts.
