Day 161: B.R.I.D.G.E. Theatre Project
Today’s give is a shout out to a fellow actor who has co-founded a great non-profit utilizing theater to resolve conflict and promote peace globally. Adam Kalesperis and I were cast in a film together that didn’t make it to production, but it was a great script/story and I remember Adam being a really great actor. I have to further commend his willingness to put others before himself by creating B.R.I.D.G.E. and I hope he hits his goal of $1,000 to start the next project.
B.R.I.D.G.E – Building Relationships and Inspiring Dialogue through Global Exchange – is an arts organization offering playwriting and acting programs to communities worldwide, providing opportunities for cultural exchange and artistic communion on an international scale.
By partnering with organizations in the US and abroad, B.R.I.D.G.E works with youth in countries around the world to give them voice, providing intensive theatre programs geared for them to collectively write their own plays. In addition to sharing their words, the participants rehearse and perform a selected play written by previous B.R.I.D.G.E participants from another country.
Their aim is to resolve conflict through theatre and promote peace through shared experiences.
Amount Donated: $20
