The Bridge Initiative - Building Bridges

The Bridge Initiative has announced Building Bridges at ASU Kerr, a new collaboration of twice-monthly offerings from October 2021 through May 2022. This two-pronged series centers community conversation using theatre as the lens to interrogate our world and relationships to each other. 

With the division and fracturing caused by the COVID pandemic and current political climate, The Bridge Initiative aims to be the bridge in our community, creating a safe space for audiences and artists to engage in dialogue and healing. ASU Kerr has strict COVID protocols including mandatory masking and its intimate venue dictates smaller attendance and additional reassurance of a safe space. Artistic expression and exploration as well as theatre's role in empathy building have perhaps never been more vital as we return to communal spaces. "Building Bridges" is emblematic of the nontraditional programming The Bridge Initiative is exploring as it spends 2021-2022 redefining what theater is and can be. Learn more at
