“Bridges was conceived out of our vision to bring communities together through the enriching experience of multicultural cross-genre collaborations in the arts. Our intent with the festival is to build a diverse, collaborative arts community by encouraging the collaborating artists to think outside the box and expand their artistry and creative exposure and allowing the audience to experience different artforms, interact and appreciate both the universal and diverse aspects of art forms around the world. 

After two successful editions of Bridges in Plano, TX, the Garage Arts Project team is excited to bring this unique, multicultural festival to Houston for the first time” says Deepa Ramachandran and Sandhya Raghuraman, from the Garage Arts Project team.

Bridges is funded in part by Dance Source Houston’s Groundwork Grant program, to further Garage Arts Project’s goal of transforming local communities through artistic engagements and creative expressions.
