ABOUT THE BRIDGING FESTIVAL
Inaugurated in 2010, The Bridging Festival is a community arts and culture festival which aims to bring communities together in this culturally vibrant neighbourhood while celebrating local leadership, creativity and diversity. Legacies from the first two events are still evident in the colorful murals painted on the pillars supporting underneath, and on the long concrete walls along the walkway on top of the Lawrence Avenue Bridge. Photos and videos of the 2012 event can be found here: http://scarborougharts.com/bridge-festival-2012/.
The 2013 Bridging Festival is presented by Scarborough Arts in collaboration with the East Scarborough Storefront, City of Toronto, Scarborough Museum and Toronto Region Conservation Authority. The Bridging Festival is generously supported by the Department of Canadian Heritage, City of Toronto, Intact Financial, AllState Insurance, Morningside Crossing, CAPREIT and the Scarborough Mirror.
