Bridge Builders

The creative force of The Bridge has always been the visionary people involved. The Bridge is our community laboratory for fresh ideas. You can’t grow if you don’t dare. Here, we take the time to spotlight some of the vibrant minds that pull us out of our comfort zones, challenge our imaginations, and create the vibrant experiences that allow Charlottesville to define itself!
