It is that time of year when our BRIDGE team is taking a pause. Our offices are closed and services are paused this week so that our staff/team can restore, reset and rest.
We hope you enjoy this Spring and all of the holidays and new beginnings you celebrate with your loved ones and community.
Please see below for some upcoming events and important days!
BRIDGE is celebrating the Earth by connecting our work to create a healthy, thriving community.
The Western Massachusetts Health Equity Network Presents: Mosaic: Film, Conversation and Community
Thursday, May 5th at 6pm
FREE, Registration Required
The Western Massachusetts Health Equity Network in conjunction with Multicultural BRIDGE presents an evening of cultural exploration, performance, and intergenerational conversation centered on the screening of the new Western MA film, Mosaic, a film that the Network commissioned to highlight the transformational work of local leaders of color and other voices from the Connecticut River Valley to the Berkshires. A regional group of young and old helped create the content and guide the process of the film’s focus on the intersection of racism and health.
Join as these questions and more are explored in an open, supportive, creative environment.
4-6 PM at Giggle Park behind Town Hall across from Mahaiwe Theatre – join in the CARE GB project where we offer materials for self-guided tours of the Town Parks and Du Bois landmarks.
5 PM Resource Fair in Mahaiwe Theatre Lobby. CHP joins us with public health messages. Greylock joins us with their Impact Report on Community Development. Join BRIDGE as we celebrate Cinco De Mayo with cultural songs, cuisine and dance. Come celebrate with us and learn what it means to steward a welcoming, healthy, diverse community and planet together in honor of Earth Day and our diverse communities.
