BridgeCAT is an arts & technology hub for underserved kids who can be (re)engaged in learning through unique creative programs delivered in a magnificent facility.

A blending of BridgeCAT and iMOVe (in My Own Voice) projects – as well as collaboration with other youth arts programs in HRM – means we offer a unique environment for ‘students-at-risk’ programs, ranging from music & video recording to culinary arts to visual arts. Some of our current projects include:
BridgeCAT believes that young artists should get the creative space they deserve if perhaps not the one they can afford.
