WHAT WE DO
A bridge represents many things: it can be a link, a scaffolding, a platform, a connection, or an extension. 8 Bridges Workshop uses our practical and on-the-job expertise in philanthropy, public media, and arts and culture to help you and your organization go from where you are now to where you’d like to go.
Our collaborative approach creates a dynamic workshop environment in which clients and our team work together to develop strategy and to research, plan, implement, and evaluate projects. We excel in future-facing projects such as strategic plans, organizational assessments, contextual research, and program development scenarios.
Bridging can take on many forms and structures. 8 Bridges Workshop can help you become the organization that you aspire to be and create a path toward a better future.
WHO WE ARE
Our core team of consultants brings diverse lived experiences to our work. We have been in your shoes and have worked in philanthropy, public media, the arts, and the private sector. We value close working relationships and often partner with organizations long-term or on successive assignments. We will join you as thought partners, learners, collaborators, and multi-disciplinarians, helping you refine your vision for the future while fitting within your organizational culture, needs, and budget.
